What wealth of information is held at Bancroft

I SUPPORT the East London Advertiser’s move to save East End History Archives from being moved and fragmented. Now that I know what a wealth of information is held at the Bancroft, I will certainly want to pay a visit there myself when I come up to London. Please let me know how I may help

I SUPPORT the East London Advertiser's move to save East End History Archives from being moved and fragmented.

Now that I know what a wealth of information is held at the Bancroft, I will certainly want to pay a visit there myself when I come up to London. Please let me know how I may help.

A campaign to make it more public would certainly get more support.

I am personally interested in Poplar and Limehouse in the 1850s and 1860s and the Irish Population there.

Appealing to people doing genealogical research would surely get more support too!

Good luck to the Advertiser and keep up the good work.
