Find out more about Islington and Finsbury on the Home Front 1939-45.
The Second World War was a conflict fought on several fronts. On the Home Front, twelve million British families, including those in Islington and Finsbury, fought their own battle between 1939-1945 and went without all but the most basic necessities.
We’ll Meet Again portrays the daily sacrifice and determination of the people of Islington and Finsbury, and how they ‘kept calm and carried on’ during these six historic years.
The full exhibition is rescheduled for presentation at Islington Museum in October 2020.
‘We’ll Meet Again’ is dedicated to memory of Islington historian Mary Cosh (1919-2020).
