They've taken some of the photos and made a book.

I haven't clicked on the link, but it sounds like the book published by Hoxton Mini Press.

There's one pic of Jubilee St 1971 and someone has written inderneath it....

See those two houses boarded up, they're for sale now. £2 million if you can afford them. Funny, cos back then you'd probably hardly been able to give them away.

It had got to be a shit hole but it certainly isnt now.

From the pictures it was clear that London was a shit hole for a long time

It looked better, cleaner back then...

The East End may have been a shithole but it was the people who made it what it was and they had pride in their shithole.

Nowadays, despite the obvious changes to the demographic in the area, there is no shared pride anymore. It is all me, me, me. Look at me. I've got the best, or most expensive, house/car/phone/clothes/trainers etc. That's why people are so quick to criticise the past.

Interesting photos. It makes me wonder how people remember things and what informs their opinions.

From the pictures it was clear that London was a shit hole for a long time. Especially compared to what it is like today.
Just looking at the men sleeping dough burning boxes in spitalfields compared to what it’s like now. London wasn’t great.

Yet in some people’s memories it was all so much better and we need to go back to how it was? It’s baffling really.

Also the idea that being able to buy or live in London was some sort of birth right that is lost today? Most people who made money moved out because it was shit. Places like ilford etc.. were where you moved to when you’d made it in Bethnal Green or hackney. The whole London property thing is a product of the last 25 yrs really.

That’s why we need these exhibitions and photos / writing about history. Because people just pretend it was something else otherwise.

I’m in the UK next month and will hopefully make a point of trying to see this, I like this sort of thing but it is strange as your almost looking at another world.

Hard to believe I grew up in that world and can remember loads of things and the feel, the noises and smell of that era, looking at the photos and seeing things you never really noticed or completely forgot about but the photos bring the memories back but you cant pin point were you where or why a particular image has some kind of connection to you.

I like the older era photos as well like the 20,s and 30s or the war years but I never had any connection to them, these from the 60,s to 80,s stir something in side in a way I can’t explain and makes them fascinating?

There’s a picture of defjam and ted fenton’s dads squaring up to each other in one of the pics in that daily mail link.

Re: The East End in colour 1960 - 1980
Theres loads more photos up there on display.
Was surprised.
Think the book is 17 quid.
And as I said, it's worth going upstairs to the history library bit and looking up any other East End stuff.
(And there's loads of different (cheaper!) books for sale upstairs as well).

The sky scrapers are amazing, but no real charm like the old days.
