AfL Members Invitation – Whiffin’s East End
20 August – 19 November
Tower Hamlets Local History Library & Archives
William Whiffin (1878-1957) lived and worked in Poplar through two world wars. Pre-eminent in what today might be known as street photography, he captured daily life in the East End in the early- to mid-twentieth century, and his powerful, evocative, and sometimes playful images are among the finest photographic documentation of London’s East End ever produced.
A series of events accompany this free exhibition full of archive images and with memorabilia loaned by the Whiffin family.
