    The earliest surviving camera photograph, 1826 or 1827, known as View from the Window at Le Gras

    Boulevard du Temple", a daguerreotype made by Louis Daguerre in 1838, is generally accepted as the earliest photograph to include people. It is a view of a busy street, but because the exposure lasted for several minutes the moving traffic left no trace. Only the two men near the bottom left corner, one of them apparently having his boots polished by the other, remained in one place long enough to be visible.

    I lived in Dalgarno Gardens! Peabody Buildings and "The Suttons" housing trust properties. No lifts in my block and my mate lived in a flat where the toilet was out on the converted balcony with the bath in the kitchen.

    My Kilburn based Dad (2nd from left) clowning around with his mates as a 20 year old circa 1936.

    Dad was the only one of this group of five London lads to make it through WWII - they used to take trips over to Ostend to have a bit of fun on the continent.

    Some great pictures there Kilburn, nice to have such mementos...

    Love the motorbike complete with number plate on the front mudguard, they called that a 'bacon-slicer' as it was lethal if you hit a pedestrian...

    I'm an avid follower of history, particularly in London, but there are a couple of these I've never heard of before...
