    These are brilliant photos. When I used to walk around there back in late 70's early 80's, it was still very similar to these photos but I 've heard that most of that area has been re-developed. I've not been back so haven't seen. Middlesex Street is always teeming with people. Leadenhall Market is also a good place to go, slightly further away.

    I've also got some good photos, but no scanner. One that brings a smile to my face is the barrow man selling cat meat. Can't see many takers for that these days, can you?

    On the subject of putting them into a frame. There's a painter that has some wonderful atmospheric paintings that I think most of us would love to own (well the prints I mean)

    Unfortunately at this precise moment the name escapes me and even after a search on the net, I haven't found it. Hopefully it will return to me.

    Great pics and drawings buddy!

    Great pics and drawings Thomas! I'm curious what period these pictures originate from.

    I'm currently decorating our new house and these pictures would look great in an old Victorian frame I suppose. Although I'm very fond of your website, it would be too much to have "jacktheripper.de" printed on pictures in my new living room (haha). Any possibilities to obtain copies of the original ones Thomas?

    Tommy:

    Thanks a million for these great photos !

    They convey a very real sense of desparation and loneliness on the one hand...and others depict the crowded conditions ( Sunday morning on Middlesex Street in particular ) which must have been overwhelming at times. Look at that crowd !

    These are much appreciated buddy...my hat is off to you for the choices in the selection of the photos you graciously posted as well. A very good cross section of the conditions of the day.
