Hi, Ken; so can we.

...Would you like to buy the photo back from us?


I say Silverstealth ought to be the photographer for Google Earth- think of all the money we'd save on satellites!

Wink Local History Documentary: "A Village On A Street"

I found a really wonderful free online documentary that I thought you might enjoy.

It's called The Lambeth Estate: A Village On A Street.
It's a locally-made in-depth history of one street in one neighborhood in London, from Roman times to the present day. The street is Roupell Street in Lambeth, Waterloo. Great video; no fluff & no pretensions; just lots of interesting solid information & oral history from eye-witnesses & local historians. (45 min. long/ 2005.)

http://lambethestate.org/film

Some of the topics discussed are Roman times, the first circus (Astley's Equestrian), the Old Vic, William Blake's actual "Satanic Mill", the building of the houses in the 1700's, bridge-building, life during the Victorian period (illustrated w/ fabulous old photos!), the history of local shops & businesses like The King's Arm's Pub, the neighborhood dairy, WWI & WWII, post-war changes, filming 'Upstairs Downstairs', old neighborhood traditions (like regularly scouring the sidewalk to keep it spic & span), & interior details of the old houses.

Long-term residents talk about the old days & compare them to modern times.
(One great old lady explains why not having indoor plumbing is "good for you"! )

Hope you like it. Archaic

Thanks for finding that, Archaic. A most enjoyable watch. What I find interesting is that the peoples of the low class areas sarghhf/sarf of the river (Bermondsey and Lambeth) were basically the same as Cockneys who were only supposed to exist north of the river in the East End. Check out Liza of Lambeth (1901?) for speech patterns or The Hooligan Nights (1899)

Default The Old Neighborhood

Hi, Stephen; glad you liked the film.
Wouldn't it be cool if more residents of old neighborhoods could get together & make a simple documentary to preserve some of their oral history?

My parents are from New York, and my Dad's Mother, Aunt, and 4 brothers & sisters all lived in a very short 1-block radius of where they were born. (I used to joke that my Dad was the only one who ever got off the block!) Most of the neighbors were the same, & when I was little & we were there for a visit I used to listen to their stories about the old days. All the people and all the shops seemed to have nick-names, as in that Lambeth video where "the Kings Arms Pub" is always referred to as "Boncy's"... I love that!
Now most of my cousins still live in the same neighborhood, many in the same houses as their parents.

My Dad also told me that as a boy, you could never get away with any even slightly bad behavior, because everyone knew everyone, and some neighbor was bound to see you do it and tell your Mother! lol

Best regards, Archaic

Some of us would still like to know the answer to this, silverstealth. I assume that you use a tripod for the night shots and, perhaps, some of the interiors, but what make of camera and what kind of lens(es) do you use? Your photos really are quite remarkable.

I've not contributed any images to this thread for a while so I just picked up the nearest few photos/postcards I've bought recently.

Aldgate Bus Station, circa 1960. The buildings to the right are still there, looking much the same. This was taken with the photographer's back to Aldgate tube station, looking south near the Minories. I better practice what I preach, so there is a stamp on the back saying 'Copyright C Carter'.

An unknown East End Street decked out for George V's Jubilee in 1935.

Card from The Battle of Stepney. It was posted on 11 January 1911, so not long after the event.

Dunno where that is.

And a nice rare thing particularly suitable at the moment with the new series of CASUALTY 1909. The card's undated but it's clearly from that time, so here's the real ladies at the London Hospital!
