Originally the 1892 Passmore Edwards Library this building is now part of the Whitechapel Art Gallery, based in the building next door with the stunning Art Nouveau facade, shown in our photo before the 2012 Rachel Whiteread enhancement which is covered by Ornamental Passions.

From Litro "... nicknamed the University of the Ghetto ... many writers who grew up in the area were regular visitors, using the library as an escape, and its books as an education.  Artists Mark Gertler and David Bomberg and the poet Isaac Rosenberg were regulars, later to be known as members of the Whitechapel Boys."
