It’s interesting that even in an era where ‘social media’ seems to dominate communications, the community bulletin board survives and is as useful as ever. Is there a laundromat or college dorm anywhere without one? (Actually, not having been in either in a long, long time, I don’t know.) The bulletin board preceded CraigsList, and shows no signs of obsolescence anytime soon.
On my last trip to London, I wanted to have a look at some of the areas that have been transformed by immigration in the past decade or so. One of them is Whitechapel, home to a large East Asian population. Click on the photo to have a closer look.
