Back in the 1850s, Whitecross Street included a sprawling yet well organised prison dedicated to the rehabilitation of debtors. It also had an emerging street market which has since grown to epic proportions as the impressive street food odours fill the air.
About the Building
One of those early stall holders was Abraham Holtz who sold textiles and bookbinders for the nearby law firms. Later, Mr Holtz bought a building on the street that came up for sale. The business still exists, run by the fifth generation in the family at the turn of the 21st Century, five residential apartments were created above for the private rented sector.
