Summary : The site of a former railway station, situated between Aldgate East and Whitechapel stations. St Mary's (Whitechapel) station opened 3rd March 1884 to serve South Eastern Railway trains from Addiscombe Road, a service which was withdrawn seven months later on 1st October 1884. A week later, on 6th October 1884, the station was first served by Metropolitan and District line trains when their services were extended from Mansion House to Whitechapel. St Mary's closed on 1st May 1938, some six months before the resited Aldgate East station opened to the west. In 1940 it was decided that the disused platforms should be used as air-raid shelters, but while alterations were under way, the streel level building was destroyed by a bomb. A new shelter entrance was constructed, but this was also destroyed by a bomb in 1941. A further entrance was then constructed.
