Due to the economic and industrial boom of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this region had a range of shops and services, as well as industrial establishments where candles, soaps and pastes were manufactured. It also included important shopping centers such as the Crystal Palace, The City of London and Wilson House. The latter was the most important, since it covered various departments, such as a pharmacy and hotel, as well as stables for rented horses.
