London's East End: Then & Now by Steve Lewis

It wasn’t always dubstep nights and media berks in tweed longboarding down Shoreditch High Street, you know – as Steve Lewis’s remarkable retrospective shows, the history of London’s East End is as varied as it is colourful. As the impending Olympics mark the climax of an enormous transformation, the stark contrast of old sugar factories, rattlewielding football fans and donkeys in pubs serves as a timely, nostalgia-pricking visual reminder of what’s gone before.

‘London’s East End: Then & Now’ is published by The History Press, £12.99.
