East London Record and Newsletter

The East London History Society published 19 issues of the ‘East London Record’ between 1978 and 1998. It was then replaced by a regular Newsletter to members.

Most issues of ELHS Record and Newsletter are now available online as searchable PDFs together with an index (also searchable) of articles.

See the bottom of this page for links to each issue of the Record, and the Newsletter Series 1 to 4.
