This alphabetical guide to the East End of London, from Spitalfields to Barking, addresses both its history and its current attractions. Once the gateway to the Empire, and the home of successive waves of immigrants, it has also seen some bitter political struggles and, in recent times, become a commercial centre to rival the City itself. The illustrations include maps, paintings, and vintage and modern photographs.
