Hi Archaic

It's just natural perspective exaggerrated by the use of a slightly wide angle lens, in this case the equivalent of a 35mm lens on a 35mm camera. By the way, Lambeth doesn't rock. It WALKS.

Wink Doing the Lambeth Walk!

Stephen, that 'Doing The Lambeth Walk' clip was great! Now I shall always envision all the residents of Lambeth Walking, dancing, whistling, and playing the spoons...with your good self as The Pearly King! Oi!

I was going to look for the Spitalfields Shuffle or the Whitechapel Wobble, but instead I found this fabulous

Several studios made their own unique versions. This is Movietone's version; I like the introduction quoting Hitler's own speech about personally "directing the steps" of the Nazi war effort. - "V" For Victory, Archaic

The original Abbey Mills Pumping Station , in Abbey Lane, London E15, a sewerage pumping station, designed by engineer Joseph Bazalgette, Edmund Cooper, and architect Charles Driver. It was built between 1865 and 1868.

It was designed in a cruciform plan, with an elaborate Byzantine style, described as The Cathedral of Sewage. It has a twin, Crossness Pumping Station, south of the River Thames at Crossness, at the end of the Southern Outfall Sewer. The pumps raised the sewage in the London sewerage system between the two Low Level Sewers and the Northern Outfall Sewer, which was built in the 1860s to carry the increasing amount of sewage produced in London away from the centre of the city.

Two Moorish styled chimneys – unused since steam power had been replaced by electric motors in 1933 – were demolished during the Second World War, as they were a landmark for German bombers on raids over the London docks. The building still houses electric pumps – to be used in reserve

You can certainly see the internal Victorian architecture in the photos of the sewage pumping station.
And those photos of the hospital's a few pages back were brilliant,really capturing the horrors that must have gone on inside those buildings in the past.

Well done silverstealth,keep 'em coming !!

Silverstealth,

Your photos are absolutely brilliant. Night photography (or photos taken in dark areas with a long exposure) is a favourite of mine. (Shame the camera I have at the moment hasn't got any manual exposure controls!)

Anyway, those photos of the Abbey Mills pumping station are superb, and really do show that the Victorians took care and pride when designing and constructing their utilitarian buildings. These days a similar new pumping station would be nothing more than a concrete box....

All the best
Andrew

Hi Silverstealth,

Great photos. Do you mind if I ask what camera you are using. The colors and detail are excellent.

Hi Rob C,

More excellent photos. This is my favorite thread, and East london in the late 19th early 20th century is just so atmospheric, and beautiful. What I wouldnt give to be able to walk down streets like the one in this shot of Orchard Place Poplar. No movie could ever recreate it.
