Spitalfields Nippers of 1912 as photographed by Horace Warner.

Spitalfields used to be one of the worst slums in London. Only 30 years before these pictures were taken one of Jack the Ripper’s victims died in its streets. These fabulous images were taken in 1912 by photographer Horace Warner who wonderfully captured the emotions and living conditions of these children.
