Old Stepney

I have been alerted to a very nice piece in today’s Spitalfields Life by Gillian Tindall, accompanied by photographs her husband took of what it looked like in the early 1960s, still very run down after the war.  It shows that ordinary photographs are actually more useful in recording what a place was like than arty photographs (http://spitalfieldslife.com/2017/12/14/in-stepney-1963/).   And it provides an eloquent description of the consequences of post-war planning on the old, more domestic East End.
