A visual tour of Stoke Newington’s past and a time when the New River ran along Church Street and detached mansions were a common sight.

Hackney Archives hold close to 2,500 digital copies of old photos and drawings of Stoke Newington. Amir Dotan, the man behind the popular twitter feed @HistoryOfStokey, was given special permission by the Hackney Archives a few years ago to present a sample of photos and drawings illustrating the history of Stoke Newington over the centuries.

In this talk Amir will take us on a visual tour of Stoke Newington’s past to a time when the New River ran along Church Street and detached mansions were a common sight. It’ll also show how slum clearance and road widening in the 1930s had a considerable impact on Stoke Newington’s streetscape.
