The Kray twins were born here

This is where the Kray Twins were born in 1933.

Location: 64 Stean Street, Hoxton

Description: This is (the old pre-war houses are long gone) where London's notorious gangsters the Kray Twins were born on the 24th October 1933.

Reginald Reggie Kray and his twin brother Ronald Ronnie Kray were renowned, feared and celebrated perpetrators of organised crime in London's East End during the 1950s and 1960s.

They stayed here with parents to Charles and Violet Kray and elder brother Charlie Junior until they were five and moved to Bethnal Green.

Some records state the address as 64 and others as 68 Stean (sometimes Stene) Street.
