The East End

Product Description

Replete with railways, canals, factories and all forms of manufacture, from the exotic to the mundane, the area was a magnet for people fleeing both rural poverty in Britain or politcal and religious oppression abroad; long hours of labour and low wages fuelled the Empire's prosperity. The absence of government regulation of infrastructure or of living conditions was notable, inspiring social conscience trade unionism and medical advances. In the early 20th century, East Enders, famously, provided a bulwark against the British fascist movement led by Oswald Mosley.

World War II brought devastation from bombing to the industry, dockyards and housing stock, necessitating a temporary and then permanent flight to Essex, north Kent or New Towns. The City found a new home in the abandoned 'Docklands'. Over the last 30 years,the Spitalfields Trust focused on saving the mostly derelict 17th century houses of Huguenot immigrants. These are now largely restored and regenerated through the enterprise of residents, forming an elegant ribbon, alluring to visitor and Londoner alike and of which the English Restaurant at 52 Brushfield Street is a prime example. This book provides, in a clear alphabetic format, a witty and reliable social history with many illustrations. It is an essential guide for the visitor and resident.
