Description - Children of Bethnal Green by Doris M. Bailey

Bethnal Green is at the heart of London's East End, infamous as the stamping ground of gangland bosses the Kray Twins. In this book the world of Bethnal Green's back streets in the 1920s, 1930s and during the Second World War is vividly recalled: the endless struggle to make ends meet, the little shops and the people who ran them, street sellers, and the very different world of Sunday school and chapel. Doris Bailey's talent for creating character, her eye for detail and sense of fun, combine to make this what the "Daily Telegraph" described as 'one of the best books ever to be written about the East End'. This fully revised and expanded edition has been illustrated with photographs from Tower Hamlets Local History Library and also includes line drawings.
