Limehouse Causeway photographed in November 1936.

Limehouse Causeway runs from the junction of Narrow Street and Three Colt Street in the west to West India Dock Road in the east. On its northern side it is joined by Gill Sreet and Salter Street. On the south side it is joined by Milligan Street.

The street was the home to the original Chinatown of London. A combination of bomb damage during the Second World War and later redevelopment means that almost nothing is left of the original buildings of the street.
