What a great photo of Black and White East End kids in the 1930s


Crown Street, Canning Town, 1930s. Hat tip Newham History Society facebook page "Your periodic reminder, Britain's multicultural history is working class history". Mary Evans Picture Library.

This is a fabulous picture in so many way but I especially appreciated this comment on the site "I remember once being told that I will never be a true east ender because I’m not white, seeing photos like this honestly fills me with joy 


Anyone know anything more about these kids?
