Auteur: William J. Fishman
Titel: The Streets Of East London
The home of successive waves of immigrants, from the Huguenots in the seventeenth century to the Jews in the nineteenth and Bangladeshis today, London's East End had been the scene of its worst poverty and exploitation, and has inspired its greatest philanthropists, reformers and radicals. The East End is, and always has been, a place where conditions are tough, crime violent and work hard, but in which Cockney optimism and love of life are proverbial. 'The Streets of East London' is crammed with historic photographs, and more recent images by Nicholas Breach.
