Discover how Dalston, an ancient hamlet of Hackney, developed from farm settlement to market gardening to brick fields to built-up suburbia by the 1860s. It has been home to big, smart houses, to refuges for destitute women and infant orphans and to a hospital for Germans. Industrialisation brought the junction of two railways and factories. The diversity of today’s Hackney is reflected by the stalls of Ridley Road, scene of post-war anti-fascist clashes.
