Skilled workers in the tailoring trade gather on a London street. Textiles work was increasingly hard to come by during the 1950s and 1960s in the East End, despite its being a long established and once thriving industry led by the local Jewish population. The availability of cheap ready-to-wear clothes produced by factories elsewhere in London reduced the prospects of the many tailors living in the East End.
