From a London street directory of 1921, it shows that the whole of Curtain Road was predominantly devoted to cabinet makers, furniture manufacturers and associated trades e.g. upholsterers, veneer producers and cabinet liners.

For a few years (2005-2009), Cordy House was a magnet for artists in East London thanks to Garfield Hackett who transformed a lonely shell of a building on Curtain Road into an East London institution. Under Hackett’s stewardship, Cordy House hosted theatre groups Punchdrunk and YouMeBumBumTrain, graffiti legends Shepard Fairey and D*Face, and all manner of parties, art shows and photo shoots. The first official event was the Boy George Fashion Show. They painted a catwalk on the floor and Naomi Campbell was the first person photographed coming out of Cordy House.
