The Scottish clothing store Gardiner, with its distinctive clock tower, gave its name to the road junction that brought together the five main thoroughfares of East London: Commercial Road, Leman Street, Aldgate High Street, Commercial Street and Whitechapel High Street.
In the early 1980s, the Greater London Council constructed a one-way system at Gardiner's Corner and destroyed its character for ever.
All that remains of Gardiners are two small pieces of wall in Drum Road and Whitechapel High Road.
