If you would like to contribute the amazing new project to map London over the last hundred years and more, please continue to read. What is needed is mainly details of when a London street was renamed, bombed, cleared, or tidied. Pictures are the best way of expressing anything, and a picture tells a thousand words. Also needed is those thousand words, or even fity words. Anything will be brilliant. Pleasde help out before the London skyline is transformed for ever. What is needed, just an email to the london19 team. We can do the rest; and you also get your name on the site, if this is OK.
