Phil Maxwell In Bethnal Green Rd

September 4, 2015
by the gentle author

For thirty years, Contributing Photographer Phil Maxwell has been photographing Bethnal Green Rd and today I publish a gallery of favourite images illustrating the street life of one of London’s most characterful thoroughfares. Starting at Shoreditch High St just outside the City of London, Bethnal Green Rd extends a lazy mile before culminating at Cambridge Heath Rd in the deep East End.
