19 Princelet Street
This is 19 Princelet Street in Spitalfields. It's supposed to be a museum about the waves of immigrants that have come to this area of East London from the 17th century onwards. Instead, it's slowly crumbling due to lack of funding and is only open to the public a few days out of the year. If you have an interest in the rich immigrant history of London and have an income larger than mine (read: any income at all), consider giving them a few quid to help fix this place up and build some permanent exhibits. It seems like they have the potential to be an incredible museum, much like the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York. I can't think why they're having so much trouble raising money.
