We’re celebrating the first 150 years of the East London Advertiser asking famous figures who began their media careers on the paper what they remember of that little newsroom tucked away in the East End. One celebrity we nurtured, Talk Radio broadcaster and presenter Julia Hartley-Brewer, tells her own story of the year back in the mid 1990s when she was on our manor...

Some big names have swung through the offices of the East London Advertiser on their way up the showbiz ladder, like TV’s Richard Madeley who joined us in 1975 as a young cub reporter.

Readers may recall this used to be a shop where you could join the AA, which still owns the building. Then it became a Gnanam Telecom telephone calling office and sold Vectonecalling cards.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
