Islington between the Wars
Saturday September 1, 10.45 am
meet Angel tube
Take a walk along Upper Street and its immediate area to experience the hidden history of the era between the wars. There was no NHS, where did the poor go for treatment and where could they get free milk? What were the shops like? What was showing at the cinemas? Where could you place a bet when betting was illegal? What is the “hole in the wall" and who used it? Philip Nelkon and Janet Foster follow the trail of Islington between the wars, this authentic walk is based on the recollections of Janet's mother who lived in the area throughout the period.
