Lonely Planet London City Guide (2010) Recommended Reading: An excellent picture - both real and remembered; of what Shoreditch looked and felt like before its regeneration.

Hackney Gazette ( February 2010): A couple of women with a passion for local history have written a book about 'quirky' Shoreditch. The Shoreditch Tales uses memories and historical records to tell humorous and moving tales of everyday life in Shoreditch over the last century.

Hackney Citizen (Winter 2009): The carefully chosen photographs and illustrations add to the sense of being there as the clock hands roll and roll, and the vivid first-hand descriptions of toy stores and pawn shops and markets and milk men are excellently transcribed onto the page. Their work is an honest, unpretentious folk history crammed with local voices and faces and products.
