In the Spitalfields area of London towards the end of the 18th century the arrival of a fresh wave of immigrants brought renewal to the area. Jewish migrants from Europe lived and worked alongside the Huguenots in Whitechapel and Spitalfields, where rents were cheap. Some Jews were very poor, and made a living by trading in old clothes that could be made into new garments. This was called the 'Rag Trade' - a name which has stuck to the textile industry in London - and took place in the streets of East London. In 1790, a 'Rag Fair' was started by Polish Jews in Cutler Street, and by 1805, there was a Rag Market in Rosemary Street (now Royal Mint Street) it is still called the Rag Trade today.
