London - The East End Stories (Audiobook)
Read by Richard Mitchley, Ghizela Rowe & Jake Urry (Unabridged: 2hrs 28mins)
London’s East End has over the centuries been a magnet for immigration, innovation, culture, crime and a vast spectrum of other things.
It is often seen as both part of and yet very distinct from the vast metropolis of London. Today it has been transformed from the often grimy, derelict and overcrowded area, that many of these stories describe, into a landscape of gentrification, sleek and shiny buildings and a booming economy.
But here such noted talents as Arthur Morrison, Henry W. Nevinson, William Pett Ridge and Thomas Burke show The East End as it really was.
