Islington between the Wars
Sun 2 April 2017, 11:30 – 13:00 BST
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 gruelling. Without the NHS, where did the poor go for treatment? Where could they get free milk? What were their shops like? How did you place a bet when betting was illegal? Yes, it was hard, but there were close communities and great fun to be had at the weekend.
Local experts Philip Nelkon and Janet Foster guide you around a very different Islington.
