This issue, guest edited by Emma Francis and Nadia Valman, revisits the Victorian East End, examining its distinctive spaces including docks, libraries, music halls, medical missions, and asylums. These essays explore fiction, photographs, street dances, diaries, investigative journalism, and texts of social investigation: they cumulatively demonstrate how the East End continues to provoke sharp questions about urban life and social progress.
