In Horace Warner took photos of East End street kids, who he called 'Spitalfields nippers'.

In the early 1900s, Spitalfields was regarded as one of the worst areas in London. People of higher upbringing were said to have avoided this area, where its residents lived in extreme poverty and criminals lurked. However, photographer Horace Warner braved the alleys of this neighborhood and took arresting images of its youth, who he had called the “Spitalfields nippers.”
