Baildon Street: The Blackest Street in Deptford?

  • Talks

Event Details

In 1899, George Arkell, working for Charles Booth, visited Baildon Street in Deptford and utterly condemned it as one of the very worst streets in the area. Were his conclusions correct and, if not, why was he so condemnatory? What was life really like in Baildon Street at that time? Join Dr John Price to find out!

A selection of local history books will also be on sale from The Word bookshop.

Doors open 6.30pm.
