Religious strife, civil conflict, waves of immigration, the rise and fall of industry, great prosperity and grinding poverty - the handful of streets that constitute modern Spitalfields have witnessed all this and much more. In this book, the author tells the stories of the streets he has lived in for four decades.
A history of 2000 years in one English neighbourhood, Spitalfields in London. Explains how the streets evolved, what people have lived there, and what lives they have led. Dan Cruickshank has known and lived in the area for more than 40 years. Illustrated with maps and engravings.
