Stratford station is a major point for switching between the London Underground, the Liverpool Street to Southend line; and more recently the Eurostar link to Paris.
I like Stratford, I have been a regular visitor here for many years. With the Olympics coming in six years, it can only get better.
Stratford Railway Terminus & Bus station, June 2006 - it's Saturday.
It really can be as quite as this, although not very often. This picture is taken as I head off away from the shopping centre, where all the locals are, and up the High Street, which most locals would drive as it is a very busy highway. The person in the picture is not me, he is walking towards the station!
Next, take a look up & down the Stratford High Street
What I am now attempting to achieve is the coverage of an earlier London
street directory in 1832. This is unique, plus
images of the 1842 Robsons directory which confirm earlier entries and also
carry much more trade detail about a premises or person. Here is the index of streets in 1832, many with
1842 imagery added.
And next is the complete 1940 London street directory - this will take some months to complete, so bear with me!
