Little Collingwood Street, Bethnal Green 1900, by John Galt. Galt worked as a missionary for the methodist London City Mission. He took photographs in the East End to illustrate lectures which he gave up and down the country to raise funds for the mission’s work. The photographs were taken primarily to show that those whom the mission sought to help, though poor, were nevertheless worthy of salvation.
