Mr Monkey in London, 12th February

"I think this kitchen is a bit too clean for one owned by a slum landlord"

In a section about housing, Mr Monkey looked out of a window to see what Hackney looked like in the days of crowded back-to-back housing, when the world was in black and white. At the other end of the museum the temporary exhibition space had recreated rooms of the sort occupied by Afro-Caribbeans arriving in Hackney in the 1950s.
