Bethnal Green : Images of London Paperback / softback
by Gary Haines
Gary Haines, East Ender, historian, once volunteer with Tower Hamlets Archives and now Archivist of the Whitechapel Gallery, has compiled this fascinating collection of over 200 archive photographs looking at the changes that have taken place in Bethnal Green from the late nineteenth century to the present day. The images chronicle eras of hardship and extremity like that of the Second World War, and times of peace and prosperity.
Altogether they combine to create a very special record of an area that has experienced great change over the years, yet has always retained its famous character. Bethnal Green provides a valuable account for the long-time resident, and brings the history of the area and its people alive for the interested newcomer.
