    I used to pick up a regular fare in Clapham going to Battersea. The geezer was posh and always told me to take him to south Chelsea :D So i charged him double each time.:thumbs:

    On behalf of mum-tat (somewhere in the lee / grove park region) anyone know a gardener / gardening firm that's decent and can cope with initial clearance / occasional maintenance sort of stuff?

    it's got beyond the stage that i can deal with it with the time and energy i have and the kit available to me...

    Another fundraiser, yeah we're all sick of them by now but if anybody's interested there's a community centre trying to set up a cafe and charity shop. It's a really good centre and does a lot to help the local community with very little money so they need to raise funds for a cafe and charity shop which could sustain the centre and its projects in future.
    Even a fiver would help

    a mate has been making these great Lewisham 77 tshirts

    If you want one you can get them from his website.
    You can either trade him something, or send a blank tee, or just buy one (£7.50)

    Puddy_Tat meh

    since there isn't a separate lewisham history type thread, these two from 1968 came up on flickr this week





    (a bit before my time, but mum-tat remembers it - parents were living in granville park at the time)

    for anyone wondering, both photos were taken from about the junction of lewisham high street and rennell street - photographer would have been stood with their back towards chiesmans' department store (the site is now the huge police station) - in the one with the blue coach, the two routemaster buses are heading towards new cross.

    i don't think a single one of the buildings visible is there any more...

    Just shown that to my OH, who thought it was great. He remembers happily being unable to go to school because of the floods!

    That bit of Lewisham is completely unrecognisable now from those photos. It's changed a fair bit since I moved here ten years ago (is it really that long? :eek:) but it's completely different even from how I remember it a couple of years ago.

    Curzon, as opposed to Picturehouse, who also put in a bid, have been selected by Lewisham Council as their preferred bidder for the redevelopment of the Ladywell Playtower (FKA Ladywell Baths).

    Another piece of Lewisham History. Yesterday was the 60th anniversary of the Lewisham Train Crash.
    A train heading from Cannon St to Ramsgate hit a train heading from Charing Cross to Hayes in very foggy conditions. It also hit a bridge which then partially collapsed onto the train. It was one of the worst accidents in British rail history with 90 people losing their lives.

    Running Past have written a great in depth article on the crash.
