Description

This fascinating oral history of London's East End spans the period after the First World War to the rise of prosperity at the beginning of the 60s, right up to the present day - an era that saw fresh waves of immigrants settle in the area, the Fascist marches of the 30s and the devastation of war. Piers Dudgeon has listened to the people who remember this fiercely proud quarter and recorded their real-life experiences of what it was like to live in a community so strong that not even virtual obliteration during the Blitz could break it.
