Idea Store - Hellen Martin Interview

Hellen Martin Interview

Born in Poplar, William Thomas Whiffin (1878-1957) was from a family of photographers and spent much of his life living in, and photographing, the East End of London in the first half of the 20th century.  This interview was undertaken in order to capture Hellen’s thoughts about her grand-father, including recollections about him that she gleaned from other family members who knew him well.  It was recorded in the run up to the Tower Hamlets Local History Library & Archives exhibition of William Whiffin's photography, 'Whiffin's East End' (20 August - 19 November 2015).
