the history of Leyton and Leytonstone
from . dot to … dots – with plenty of spaces
The working-class community was created at the St James Street end of Walthamstow, using cheap trains to Liverpool Street Station, which supported a strong Radical political movement headed by James Joseph McSheedy 8. Leyton’s equivalent around Harrow Green in contrast was notable for the strength of its high Anglican churches, Holy Trinity and St Margaret of St Antioch.
More radical politics came from West Ham where a majority of the Board of Guardians of the Poor might favour generous public expenditure, a preference given provocative physical form in the glorious Infirmary at Whipps Cross.
