London’s East End: 1900s-1930s
The East End in the early 20th century was a world of cobbled streets and thick fog. Thousands of Londoners lived in cramped, sooty tenements. Their homes were lit by gas and infested with lice.
Amidst this dire poverty lived a close-knit community defined by resilience, kindness and humour. Children played in the streets and the men crowded to the Dock gates for work. From the match factories of Bow to the hop fields of Kent, see how London’s East Enders lived in the years before the Second World War in this magnificent production by Timereel.
