It was a hot day (17th June 2006), and the remit of this visit was to find Pubs, photograph the new Olympics area in its first building stages and get a natural feel for the area; what a great day I had. I believe the Olympics will be a major success, and this area chosen is absolutely perfect for the setting.
This is an impressive slice of land, we are looking at here; but this is tiny compared with the complete site. And with its close proximity to London, and all of its infrastructure, travel routes and links; this is a perfect setting for the Olympics in 2012.
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!
