JEWISH EAST END OF LONDON PHOTO GALLERY & COMMENTARY

London's East End Synagogues, cemeteries and more......

My personal journey through the Jewish East End of London

 
Stepney Workers Sports Club, circa 1936
 
Dear Philip

You might be interested in the attached photo. It's a picture of some members of the Stepney Workers Sports Club which to all intents and purposes was a Jewish left-wing club. Many of the members were in the Young Communist League. On the far left standing just beneath the banner is Woolf Miller and kneeling in front of him just about recognisable is my dad Jack Shaw (nee Shuckman). This must have been taken sometime in 1936 when fascism was rampant in Germany and Italy hence the slogans.  Perhaps someone might recognise the other members in the picture.

Regards

Freddy
