111 Places in London's
East End That You Shouldn't Miss
Mediaeval no-go zone, Victorian hell-hole, war-ravaged bomb site, 21st century shining city, the most exciting area in one of the most exciting cities in the world – the East End has often been London’s strange alter ego.
Ed Glinert trawls through the strange stories, the crazed characters, the violent vignettes, the dried-up docks, the imaginative immigrants, the proud philanthropists to give a different history of the most misunderstood sector of the capital.
Ed Glinert was born in Dalston, two miles from the East End. He studied Maths and Classical Hebrew at Manchester University, but not at the same time. He worked for Private Eye magazine for more than 10 years, and has written a number of books for major publishers including The London Compendium and East End Chronicles for Penguin. He is one of Britain’s most prolific tour guides, working in London, Manchester and Liverpool, and gives talks on cruise ships. He knows who were responsible for the Jack the Ripper murders.
Marc Zakian is a photographer and writer. His images have appeared in newspapers and magazines across the world, including The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, The Times, Condé Nast Traveller and DK Guides. He is also the editor of The Guide magazine. Marc has lived in Dalston, in East London, for nearly 30 years, photographing its transformation from down-at-heel cityscape to hipster hot spot.
