No, it's gone.

Sorry Denis but it was demolished along with Mile End Road and most of the streets running off it. There is the odd end house left on the corners where the streets reached Baring Street which is still standing. I was walking down there the other day and you could see the old street names on the remaining house. Cleveland, Livingstone and Hedley Streets. Replaced by modern houses and flats. Used to have a school friend lived in Cleveland Street.
