Jean Fullerton’s Autobiography: A Child of the East End

Please note this is a location based event at Valence Library.

Life in Cockney London was tough in the post-war years. The government’s broken promises had led to a chronic housing shortage, rampant crime and families living in squalor. But one thing prevailed: the unbeatable spirit of the East End, a tight-knit community who pulled through the dark times with humour and heart.

Author Jean Fullerton will be drawing on both family history and her own memories of growing up in the 1950s and ’60s, as well as her working life as a district nurse and local police officer. Jean will depict this fascinating part of London – from tin baths, to jellied eels, to tigers in a Wapping warehouse.
