The Duke's name crops up quite often around here. Not surprising given his German background and the large German community.

E8, Ritson Road / Madinah Road

This U-shaped 1864 extension is the building to which the above-door inscription refers. The same architects also designed the West Lodge and probably the North Lodge.

There is also meant to be a Hackney plaque here but we did not see it.
