Amazing app, telling the story of Hackney's radical past in its own voice, in its own streets. So much archive material and great stories of how poetry led to a police lock-down in Homerton and how young and old fought to fight fascism and deportations. More relevant today than ever!

A great resource. Lots of lovely information about different areas of Hackney over the years. I never knew about the "three penny doctor" Dr Jelley, or the lost island, or the street battles between Mosley's blackshirts and the anti-fascist Jewish commandoes – all here on the streets of Hackney!
