    Two things stuck out for me - First that everyone wore overcoats all the time, second that it took 2 days to rebuild a bombed bridge. Two years if you are lucky today.

    Great photos. Quite a few of the isle of dogs where I now live, very few pre1940 buildings survived the War and the closure of the docks in the early 1980s.

    They need to reinstate the pedestrian traffic lines.

    This is the White Lyon, Curzon Street taken in the mid 19th century.
    In 1800 my great, great, great, great grandfather, Henry Fell, was the licencee.
    It was coverted back into a home (with the two properties next door) in the last 40 years.
    It was (and may still be) the home of Amit Bhatia.

    Small world, I saw quite a few bands in there in the 70s, my father-in-law was manager of an electrical goods shop on the corner of Baron's Court Road which was almost opposite the pub in the latter part of the 70s so I'd often pop in the pub with him after he'd closed up in the evening. The lodger who lived above the shop was a David Bowie clone called Zaine Griff who actually recorded an album which Bowie and his producer Tony Visconti worked on. His band Screemer played there. The Stranglers were certainly really raw when they played there but you could see they were going places...
