London Fields Travellers
I read the Spitalfields Life blog every day. The other day there was an especially interesting entry about the travellers in London Fields. http://spitalfieldslife.com/2011/06/02/travellers-children-in-london-fields/ . The pictures showed a very different Hackney one that is disappearing. If you have time at the bottom of the article there is a link to Spitalfields Nippers which shows an even more fascinating time in the east end’s life and an interesting contrast to the photos taken around London Fields.
A great set of pics. It also helps to explain the presence of the London Gypsy and Traveller Unit on Westgate Street – I’d always been curious about why it was located there.”
