5.0 out of 5 stars Superb colour photographic book
I recently read Steve Lewis's first book, London's East End: A 1960s Album and was delighted with it. This book gives more of the same, plus a fascinating comparison with what is on the same spot today. There are some beautiful photos of the docks, streets, pubs and East End markets 50 years ago, and it is amazing to see the changes that have taken place. There are lots...

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely pictures
The pictures in the book were good, but it did not match my expectations. The book is not very big and whilst the photos in it are interesting there were not enough for me. I assumed that the pictures would be of the same view taken years apart, but whilst there were some it was not the main feature of the book.

There are lots of people pictures too, which gives this an extra level of interest.

As an East ender , I enjoyed seeing the photos of then and now . I do feel however that this type of book needs to be larger , with many more photographs . It was good for as far as it went , but it could have gone further.

I bought this for my mate Simon who is a big fan of East London (we all live in Leytonstone) and he was very impressed.

Great pictures and fascinating to see how things have changed (or not!) over time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing to do with the East End, 2 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London's East End Then & Now (Then & Now (History Press)) (Hardcover)
Really disappointed with this. It has nothing to do with the East End as all the photos are from Newham, which is East London. A waste of money if you wanted a book about the East End.
