Some Lives!: A GP's East End (ISBN:1856190730) WIDGERY David, Illustrated by Photographs By Sydney Shelton. London: Sinclair-Stevenson, 1991. Cloth. First Edition. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Unclipped dustwrapper. Green lettering to spine. An author and a physician, Widgery has lived and practiced in London's East End for 20 years and gives a first hand report of medical practice in a depressed inner city area. Dr Widgery argues that a GP is as much a witness as an executant; a privileged observer of pain endured, private sadness and jubliant recovery. Yet, despite the deprivation, East Enders, old and new, retain the Cockney virtues of solidarity, warmth and humour. A classic of compassionate social witness. An accounting of the East Enders who were passed over in both the London Docklands Development Corporation and the eighties boom by the doctor who cared for them. Photographs by Syd Shelton. 248 pages with index. The London Docklands Development Corporation celebrated ten years of 'urban renewal' in London's East End. But what have been the human consequences for the people who live there? Binding is Hard Cover. octavo.
