East End in Focus: Bishopsgate Library Tour: General Introduction
Bishopsgate Library
What was the ‘battle of the books’ and why did the Institute lock away one archive item from the public fearing it may cause revolution? Find out at this behind-the-scenes tour of Bishopsgate Library exploring its unique and fascinating history and the collections relating to the history of London, the early labour movement, radicalism and co-operation.

The tour will be led by Stefan Dickers, Bishopsgate Institute’s Library and Archives Manager.

Free admission; advance booking recommended

Why not visit Eleven Spitalfields Gallery (by appointment only weekdays) from 7 March to 25 April 2014 to see the wonderful photographs of Spitalfields that C. A. Mathew took over 100 years ago. These rarely seen images from our archives, carefully restored by photographer Jeremy Freedman, have inspired and complement the East End in Focus series.
