The contribution of successive generations of immigrants is reflected in the variety of places of worship and cultural centres, from chapels to synagogues and mosques, while a century of social housing has produced innovative planning and architecture, now itself of historic interest." "This volume covers the boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets, and Waltham Forest. For each area there is a detailed gazetteer and historical introduction. A general introduction provides an historical overview. Numerous maps and plans, over one hundred specially taken photographs and full indexes make this volume invaluable as both reference work and guide."--Jacket.
