    Hi all, I'm planning a few ideas for my new story at the moment. Its going to be situated in east end london during mostly the 80's, going into the 90's. Am thinking of taking a trip to london soon to have a mooch around. But if anyone can give me some ideas what it was like, or any good links, that would be fab! :redface:
    Has anyone else wrote a story in this location and time?

    As much as I hate to write this, given my recent views on the author, Martina Cole does actually do a lot of good scene setting in East End London, and gives a good idea of the sort of spread of ethnicities, locations they hung around in, and various places of note. She tends to spread her novel from the 70's-00's, so there's plenty of scope.
    You may want to be gouging your eyes out by the end of it and wishing you'd never learned how to review literature though, but for scene setting, she will give you a few ideas.
