Melancholy streets, in a penitential garb of soot, steeped the souls of the people who were condemned to look at them out of windows, in dire despondency.
Quoted from Chapter 3 of Little Dorrit.
Site: Marshalsea Prison - Angel Alley (6 memorials)
SE1, Borough High Street, Angel Alley
We've put the pin for these 6 plaques at the entrance to the alleyway but they are actually laid into the ground, distributed along the alley all the way to Tennis Street. We've numbered them west to east. In our picture you can see the old wall, the steel plaque and the first of the stone plaques.
