In 1999, Eastside Community Heritage established the East London People’s Archive, which now holds over a thousand oral histories, thousands of photographs, and video material, all preserved and archived for public benefit. Projects conducted by Eastside Community Heritage document the lives of ‘ordinary’ people in East London. Topics include World War Two, women’s history, markets, boxing, ethnic groups in East London, food and parks.
