These previously unpublished photographs by David Granick capture the streets and waterways of London’s East End in the warm hues of Kodachrome film. Journey back in time to a place now long vanished.

David Granick (1912-1980) was a photographer who lived in the East End his whole life. His color slides laid untouched until 2017 when a local photographer, Chris Dorley-Brown, examined them at Tower Hamlets Local History Library & Archives.

“I was completely blown away by these pictures,” says Dorley-Brown, of the first time he saw Granick’s slides. “I had always suspected that there was a great color collection of East London photographs taken during this era.”
