Working Lives Vol. One: Hackney 1901 – 1944

Another excellent Centerprise book by The Peoples Autobiography of Hackney. What comes across in this one is how much simpler life was at this time, most people started work at 14 or younger working very long hours and the dangers involved were immense often resulting in serious injuries or even death! You can still get secondhand copies of this book from Amazon and other online bookshops.
