The magazine of the photo-essay
March 2018 back issue
The East End in Colour
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
by David Granick
When a local photographer was invited to examine 1,000s of David Granick’s colour slides in early 2017, he knew he’d seen something special. These images capture the post-war streets of Stepney, Whitechapel, Spitalfields and beyond in the warm hues of Kodachrome film at a time when black and white photography was the norm. Acquired by Tower Hamlets Local History Library & Archives in the early 1980s and preserved there safely since, these photographs show an East London on the cusp of social change. The book coincides with an exhibition running: 3 February - 5 May 2018 at Tower Hamlets Local History Library & Archives 277 Bancroft Road, London, E1 4DQ
