I have always liked the Derelict London website:
because it shows the City as it really is.
The changing urban landscape.
– places which I used to know that have fallen in to
– places which I’ll never see the insides of again.
– buildings which are about to be pulled down.
Just take a look for yourself.
Now there is a Derelict London book.
A book of photos and descriptions.
Many of which are places which I have known & used.
– Pubs such as the George Robey or The Intrepid Fox.
– Buildings like Winchester Palace.
– Places like Crystal Palace.
– The Tea Rooms in Holborn, which I first used during the
summer of 1968.
Yet other buildings in the book I have known about, but
will never be able to visit now.
– Places like the Tate Institute at Silvertown.
Then there are local landmarks such as:
-Battersea Power Station,
– The Cinema at Hoxton.
Even if you don’t know these places, then this is a
fascinating book to read.
