Looking back (east) towards the viaduct?

This, I believe, is the south eastern corner, just before the Causeway met Gill Street. It's tagged as the southern side of the street, and the 'Borough of Poplar' plaque seems to confirm it as that corner.

Here's the entrance from the WIDR. The shop where Anna May Wong was photographed - San Sam Sing & Co. at no. 5 LC - is on the left, behind the lamp post.

There are some gaps in the LC jigsaw. This fits in somewhere west of the viaduct:

I know this is a repeat, but it helps put the photos into context - the PO Directory of 1931:

When my dad was 5/6 he was sent to Holmes ironmongers to get the family's radio valve* charged/exchanged.

As he told the story, it was an autumn afternoon, the light was draining from the sky and a mist was rolling in from the river. As he made his way back from the ironmongers a sinister-looking Chinese man, complete with a Fu Man Chu beard, loomed out of an alley or doorway. Terrified, he dropped the valve, which smashed on the granite sets (colloquially known as cobbles), and ran like the wind back to the safety of no. 36, where, of course, he received the traditional 'good hiding'.

* Something like this, I imagine:
