Spitalfields Nippers - it is my great delight to reveal these breathtaking photographs taken by Horace Warner in Spitalfields at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. These pictures which have never been reproduced before, and have hardly been seen by anyone outside his immediate family, are published with the gracious permission of Horace Warner’s grandson, Ian McGilvray.
