Plaque: George Green School - 1884

Erection date: 1884


The George Green Schools
Founded and endowed in Chrisp Street and Prestons Road by George Green Esquire of Blackwall, AD MDCCCXXVIII {1928}.  Placed under a new trust and rebuilt on the present site with the sanction of the Charity Commissioners, AD MDCCCLXXXIV {1884}.

{Below the central bay window on the main elevation some lovely almost free-standing lettering:}
The George Green Schools 1884.

Above this large, plain, plaque there is a small ornate stone with "G.S." on a shield surrounded with foliage, quite badly damaged. Which makes the plain triangle above this plain plaque even odder.

Site: George Green School (3 memorials)

E14, East India Dock Road, 155, National Skills Academy

This 1884 building was designed by Sir John Sulman. The bronze plaque is on the, hidden, east-facing side of the clock tower.
