A book of stories from the East End of london, taken down by Henry Nevinson (1856-1941) and his wife Margaret Wynne Nevinson, who decided to move into some flats ‘among bugs, fleas, old clothes, slippery cods’ heads and other garbage’ as part of their interest in socialism and social reform (Nevison was an early member of the Social Democratic Federation). The narrator, Jacko Britton – takes us around his community, telling ten stories of the slums and their inhabitants.
