The changing face of the East End through immigration and gentrification is set to be documented in an exhibition opening next month.
Featuring historic photographs, talks, tours and films the project, called “…how is it towards the East?” uses Shoreditch’s Boundary Estate as a starting point from which to explore the area’s history.
Among the pictures on display at the Calvert 22 gallery in Shoreditch are photos of the gallery itself, taken when it was still in use as a silk weaving factory.
Historian David Rosenberg will also be on hand to offer guided walks around the East End, with a particular focus on the contribution made by some of its most important women, from suffragette Minnie Glassman to anti-fascist campaigner Joyce Goodman.
The exhibition, at gallery Calvert 22 in Calvert Avenue, Shoreditch, from May 1.
