          absolutely love the shot of Millers Court......take it that the additional snapshot in the tunnel is an add-on ? so tantalising !!

            Jason,

            Yes, it's one of a number of "photomontages" that feature in the book. There's also a close-up view down the passageway that appears alongside this one on the same page.

            The recreation of Millers Court uses about seven or eight separate photos in all.

            All the best

              Great visuals...

              Those superimposed shots (as I would call them) are terrific. Sometimes it's hard to get a feel for the Autumn of Terror after the modernization and tear downs.......great stuff......I'm dying to know what year that Miller's Court photo was shot?

              Looks very tantalizing...

                Andrew,

                I'm not much of a facebooker (bookite? bookie?). How do I go about ordering a copy of your latest work?

                  Greg,

                  The shot of the Millers Court arch was taken in 1927, and appeared in Leonard Matters' book the following year. I have taken the liberty of straightening out the image in Photoshop, to give the appearance of looking at the arch head on, rather than at an angle as in the original photo.

                  GM,

                  The book will be available from 31st August, at which point I'll post the relevant link on Facebook, Casebook and jtrforums to preview and order the book.

                  All the best
                  Andrew

                    Thanks Andrew, I'm very much looking forward to this one...

                    Rather an eerie date for publication is it not? Ha ha...
