- Kurzbeschreibung&8220;The idea for a book on the East End formed sometime in the 1980s. The London Docks had already closed down or<br>were starting to. I chose to shoot mainly in the districts of Silvertown and Canning Town. I have over the years spent<br>many weekends shooting whatever took my fancy. The other two times I had bursts of photographic energy in the East<br>End were in the 1960s and from about 2004 to 2010. These were my three key periods to draw pictures from, instead<br>of just trolling through the last fifty years of archives.<br>In the late 1940s and early 1950s I heard a quote on the radio, &8216;Go west, young man.&8217; At the time I didn&8217;t give it much<br>thought. Later I assumed it was from America and that it went back to the middle of the nineteenth century, when America&8217;s<br>west coast was opening up to great wealth and opportunities. The cockneys should have listened, but they didn&8217;t. They<br>went east like their ancestors before them. The ones that moved east out of &8216;Old Nichol&8217; went to Whitechapel, then on<br>to Stepney and Bow, then to what is now called Newham and later to Barking, Dagenham and onto Essex.<br>My mother was from Bow, my father it seems was from Hackney, my grandfather from Bethnal Green. Before him they<br>all were from Whitechapel as far as records show.&8221; David Bailey
