The Limehouse Church Institute, now apartments

The fašade of the building to Three Colt Street is designed in deep buff-tinted terra-cotta, designed in the Later Renaissance style of English Architecture. Accomodation provided for girls' factory club and girls' friendly society, boys' club and men's club, billiard and games room, gymnasium and kitchen. Staircases of Victoria stone provided at each end of building. (from The Builder 1903)

I was wondering, do we have any information as of which part of Limehouse was known as London's "Chinatown" and where opium dens might have been located?

I went in that pub once or twice years ago.

Chinatown was in the area around a street called Pennyfields which is still there. It is to the right of the number 4 on my map and above the red line, which is West India Dock Road.
There used to be a lot of Chinese Restaurants in the area by the big junction.
There are still one or two.
