The upgrade and extension of the East London line and its incorporation into the London Overground network provided an opportunity to examine life in London’s inner city and suburban districts between the 19th and 21st centuries, and the impact that the railways had on life for Londoners from Dalston in the north to Surrey Quays in the south. Standing building recording and excavations at the site of Bishopsgate goods station and Lea Street in Haggerston shed light on life in these areas before the arrival of the railways, and the resulting tumult for the occupants of the East End.
