Limehouse Nights

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Limehouse Nights is a 1916 short story collection by the British writer Thomas Burke. The stories are set in and around the Chinatown that was then centred on Limehouse in the East End of London. It was a popular success and features several of Burke's best-known stories such as The Chink and the Child and Beryl and the Croucher.

Film adaptations

The Chink and the Child was turned into the 1919 film Broken Blossoms directed by D.W. Griffith and its 1936 remake. Beryl and the Croucher was filmed in 1949 as No Way Back set in the contemporary East End as part of the Spiv cycle of films made in the years following the Second World War.
