Second hand chairs getting ready to dance on stage. The stage is falling into disrepair and the fireplace is ancient but it looks glamorous. Near the door is the finest furniture cleaner so they look dazzling.

The finest vegan food this side of Hackney. The banana cake was lovely and the carrot cake moist, it’s more like a five star restaurant than an East End Squat with food for everyone.
This picture was taken in Brick Lane, East London. The open window represents the social openness of the East End; the relaxed and informal atmosphere. This image shows the café culture, where on a Sunday the mixed cultures come together to sell and buy on the infamous Brick lane market.

What is this hooded boys intentions? Murder? Robbery? Vandalism? That's what the media would have you think. Maybe, just maybe, he is waiting for his bus on a cold day.
This picture describes My East End. I feel the market traders help to represent East London living because its renowned for its markets… Bethnal Green, Roman Road, and Columbia Road. These are well-known markets.

This picture was taken on Roman Road, this window caught my eyes because of the tackiness it depicts. From the outside, it looks like an abandoned and run-down flat but there are actually occupants.
Most of the East end shops are newly built but this shop looked very old and it proved to me that this shop has definitely been in the East end for a very long time.

Alcohol is quite a common type of drink in the East end because people love to drink it when they go raving. Example of a Main East end raving place is Stratford Rex and Club Nynteen.

This image was taken In a shop in Brick lane. This to me represents MY EAST END because East London is well known for there markets as you can find almost anything and everything that’s antique, old and quirky in the shops. This represents History as brick lane was developed in the 17th century and therefore plays a major part in the east London history one of the oldest markets there
This image is my east London; this picture was taken in a corner in my bedroom. I really like the colours that are shown and the contrast between the two walls. And question why the chair and objects are there…
