About this record

On 12 April, the weekend before all shops were able to open with the easing of lockdown, the Volunteer Community Photographers took portraits of local businesses and spoke to the shopkeepers and workers about Newham Heritage Month’s theme of Shops, Docks and factories.

I like the theme of Shops – especially now as everyone, every small shop needs the support of the community – Nikolett owner of Chimney Cake Paradise
