Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, for David Rosenberg’s second East End Walk:
Soon after you begin your Radical Jewish East End tour you encounter a number of important landmarks:
- Angel Alley where the Jewish anarchist tradition lives on
- Gardiners Corner where East Enders blocked the path to Mosley’s fascists.
and that’s just the start…
During the tour you will find the answer to many questions:
- Why did the Jews come to the East End?
- Who was Rudolf Rocker and what did he do?
- Why was there a riot in Princelet Street in 1904?
- Who lived in the Rothschild Buildings?
- What was the Workers Circle?
- Who was Hannah Billig and why did she refuse a once-in-a-lifetime invitation?
We are meeting this Sunday 22 March 2009 – 12 noon SHARP outside the Whitechapel Art Gallery on Whitechapel High Street – so please arrive between 11.45-12.
The refurbishment of the Gallery is almost complete so the hoardings have been cleared away and the old front entrance to the Gallery is looking pristine and easy to find (it’s postcode is E1 7QX if you want to find it on multimap).
The nearest tube is Aldgate East (District line, Hammersmith and City Line). Come out of the Toynbee Hall exit, turn left, cross the road and continue up Whitechapel High Street. The gallery is about 50 yards beyond Burger King, Home of the Whopper (what was once Bloom’s Restaurant, olevesholem).
