Start at the Angel, walk in and around Upper Street and through the ‘hole in the wall’ and be transported back into another era when life was hard. Without the NHS, where did the poor go for treatment? Where could they get free milk? What were their shops like? What weekend entertainment was available? How did you place a bet when betting was illegal? Local experts Philip Nelkon and Janet Foster guide you around a very different Islington.
