This is an advertisement for A. B. Slamon, an importer and quarrier located in Mile End, London. During the 19th century the area of Mile End was transformed and the fields were developed for housing. The population rose to nearly 113,000 people, some were employed in local industries or worked in the docks but many more travelled into the city to find work. Mile End was quietly respectable and there was very little extreme poverty compared to other parts of East London.
