Gerry Black recalls the origins and motives of the generation of Jews who came to make their home in London.  The development of close-knit societies they formed in the East-End, in north London and elsewhere in the capital is recorded, and illustrated, in graphic detail.  He also gives a fascinating account of their struggle to establish themselves in the city - their housing, their work and trades, schools, hospitals and synagogues.

Essential reading for everyone who is interested in the Jewish community and in the cultural diversity of the capital.
