Buck's Row ran East-West from Brady Street to Baker's Row. Parallel to it and meeting it about half-way along its length was Winthrop Street. Going East down Buck's Row from the corner of Buck's Row and Winthrop Street was a board school, Brown's Stable Yard, and tenements.

Across the road from the stable yard were wharves. East of the wharves was Browne & Eagle's Wool Warehouse, Schnieder's Cap Factory, and then a low brick wall continued on down to Brady Street. At the North-West corner of Buck's Row & Brady Street was a street lamp.

The area was frequented by prostitutes. From Osborn Street & Whitechapel Road, the stable yard was about one-half mile.
