Abstract:

The East End of London in the 1950s was a vibrant place, with a close community. Families often lived within streets of each other, children made playgrounds of the bombsites, and clubs and pubs formed the centre of a lively social scene. However in the living conditions of post-war London, life was often a struggle. It was into this community that Jennifer Worth came as a midwife, working with the nuns of Nonnatus House. She tells of the devastating effects of tuberculosis on one family, the dangerous practise of back-street abortions, and of mothers driven to extremes by poverty or social pressure. As the 1960s dawned the docklands began to change beyond all recognition. Farewell to the East End charts these years.
