Spitalfields Life is a blog about the days and discoveries of life in East London. The ‘gentle author’ recently posted a series of old photographs depicting life in London during the 1800s. The collection of pictures came from the ‘Society for Photographing the Relics of Old London’ and are currently held in the archive at the Bishopsgate Institute. It’s a fascinating glimpse of a unique era in the city’s history and will have you wishing you could be fitted for a proper pair of trousers, a waste coat and a crisp black tophat.
