    Hi Andrew

    I'm looking forward to the book release

    Have you put the film you showed at Cardiff online anywhere?

    My wife was keen to see it but unfortunately I snapped the disc

      Sorry to hear that Nemo, but the film was a limited edition of 25 copies for attendees of the Cardiff Job, and won't be put online. I will be releasing a short promo film on the web along similar lines, but it won't be what you saw in Cardiff.

      All the best
      Andrew

          Thanks Nemo. Actually, the promo may actually become available online in the not too distant future after all. Watch this space!

          In the meantime, here's a view of Assembly Passage from the book...

              Thanks Andrew

              I hope the promo does go online, I think it will be very much appreciated by a much wider audience

              I'd recommend it even if you haven't got any interest in the East End

              The photographs are superb and the manipulation masterful

              I'm useless with anything like Photoshop

              You should make some shots available as prints for the wall IMO

                        Nice looking...

                        Nice looking book, the photo's are better than the ones I took of the murder sites back in August 1967 with my Kodak Brownie 127.

                          Stewart,

                          Thanks! I do think though, that the ones you took in 1967 are wonderful historic records of the murder sites, only a matter of a few years before they were swept away for good. Mine are just arty shots that have been tweaked in Photoshop!

                          All the best
                          Andrew

                            A then and now shot of Whitechapel Station, showing Durward Street and the board school on the left. The "then" shot is from 1902, which makes it one of the earliest views of the former Buck's Row in existence.

                            This was originally intended for inclusion in the new book, which can be previewed and ordered here:

                              Granted the fact that the picture on the left is black and white, but this photo you kindly shared from 1902 has a lot of atmosphere to it, Andrew.
                              Thanks for posting it.

                                Sidney Street

                                The book may be finished, but I'm still doing the montages!

                                Took some friends around the east end last week, and visited Sidney Street, scene of the famous seige of 1911.

                                A photomontage of the place where Winston Churchill observed proceedings. (100 Sidney Street itself was across the road to the left of this view).
