The Streets of East London is an illustrated guide to the most vibrant area of London. For 25 years this has been a classic text, and steady seller in many London shops. Suitable for tourists, historians, and anyone interested in the history of London. The Streets of East London talks about the East End, from the Huguenots of the seventeenth century to the Bangladeshis of today. William (Bill) Fishman talks about the area's poverty and attempts to relieve it, the successive waves of immigration, crime (including Jack the Ripper and the Krays), the radical movement, and ends with suggested walking tours. The Streets of East London is crammed with historic photographs, and more recent images by Nicholas Breach.
