Bishopsgate Library has been collecting material about the social and cultural history of the East End since opening in 1895. Join this tour to hear about gangsters, policemen, revolutionaries and co-operators, and to delve into some of the treasures held in the Library collections.

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.
