Spitalfields is known for its smart, rich, Huguenot Master silk weavers. But the area was also home to thousands of poor weavers, paid by the day, mostly of French ancestry, scratching out a living amid riots, poverty and appalling social conditions. Join author and historian Julian Woodford on a virtual tour of the world of the Journeymen Weavers of London’s East End.
