Page 185. " Limehouse "

Limehouse is an area in the East End of London, situated at the eastern end of the Commercial Road in the Borough of Tower Hamlets.

By the late 19th Century, Limehouse Causeway and nearby Pennyfields (in Poplar) had become London's Chinatown (an area with a high Chinese population and a large number of Chinese-run businesses).
