The East End in Colour, 1960-1980

Stepney Photographer David Granick (1912-80) has been the feature of a major book: “The East End in Colour 1960-80” edited by Chris Dorley-Brown and published by Hoxton Minipress.

When a local photographer was invited to examine 1,000s of David Granick’s colour slides in early 2017, he knew he’d seen something special. These images capture the post-war streets of Stepney, Whitechapel, Spitalfields and beyond in the warm hues of Kodachrome film at a time when black and white photography was the norm. Acquired by Tower Hamlets Local History Library & Archives in the early 1980s and preserved there safely since, these photographs show an East London on the cusp of social change.
