Chart the twists and turns of the lives of three generations of women in one family at this Open Archive led by our Community Curators.

Our records give vivid impressions of life in the East End from the perspective of a nun, a Post Office worker, a housewife, a power loom weaver and a cleaner at Belvidere Fever Hospital.
