This is a large beautifully illustrated edition of CALL THE MIDWIFE with never-before-seen photographs which bring the real London and real lives to life. Pictures of the docklands, photos of how life was lived at the time, the families, housing, health service, food and of course the nuns and the midwives who brought so many babies into the world will be a beautiful addition to Jennifer Worth’s bestselling memoir.


brings the East End of the Fifties to life
This is an illustrated version...studded with drawings and wonderful black-and-white photographs of the East End - where Jennifer practised - in the 1950s... very moving... Worth's publishers have included photographs from her own family albums...so that you get an even clearer sense of this lost world - those who lived it, and those who tried to make it more bearable
From the moment I opened this beautifully-illustrated hardback, I was enchanted - from the poignant sepia photographs, to the author's engaging, conversational prose... I would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for a moving and heart-warming memoir
glorious... A real treat, particularly for fans of the TV show, and one to keep
Worth's books are full of fascinating social history: about living conditions in east London, the scale of poverty and violence, the realities of postwar medicine and the workhouse
