Horace Warner

Here is another set of Mr. Warner's photos of London's East End street kids, who he called 'Spitalfields nippers'. 

 In this image, captioned “Quite Clean ’Nuff”, 
a boy washes his face in a Spitalfields yard
 Jeremiah Donovan, six, was nicknamed 
'Dick Whittington' because of his pet cat
 Joey Lyons and Nellie Slark - the story book
 The “Sisters Ellis” wear matching dresses, probably made 
by their mother, a worker in the garment trade
