Inspired by Derek Baker’s 1990 property survey of Stoke Newington Church Street, I traced and documented the history of each one of Church Street’s 291 addresses. The result provides a fascinating view of how Church Street changed since 1847 as many occupations and shops came and went over the years.

I’ve used an online charting tool to create a ‘Race Chart’ using the survey to show the top 20 most common business types over the years. The result is an insightful animation that shows the rise and fall of various industries and businesses since the 1840s.
