Struggling against poverty to survive, and fighting for their community in our country's darkest hours.But there was also joy to be found. Across the East End the streets were alive - you need only walk a few steps for a smile from a neighbour or a strong cup of tea.From taking over the London Underground, standing up to the Kray twins and crawling out of bombsites, The Stepney Doorstep Society tells the vivid and moving stories of the matriarchs who remain the backbone of the East End to this day.____________'Astonishing' Radio 5 Live'An importance glimpse into a vanishing world' Sunday Express'Crammed full of fascinating stories' BBC 2 Steve Wright
