London is Changing

12 October 2014

Region: London

We’re looking for signs of change in Bleeding London today.

 

‘... the buildings they inhabited have been changed out of all recognition.  The streets are no longer the same.  They’ve been modernized, transformed.  The men and women of the past did not walk these actual paving stones.  Their world looked different, smelled different, felt different. [...] The city, it seems to me, must always be a palimpsest, a series of erasures, of new beginnings, obliterations, of temporary preservations and misguided reconstructions.’  (Bleeding London, Geoff Nicholson, 2014:205)

 

Let’s see images of construction, destruction, modernisation and transformation.  There’s plenty of evidence in every postcode.

 

There are bonus points for signs of change in the suburbs and the double-digit postcodes today.  Double bonus points for any ‘misguided reconstructions’  (BPCC 1210).

We’re still looking for post-people for some of the postcode areas. If you can help co-ordinate the streets that have been covered and arrange some coverage of your area, please drop us a line at london@rps.org.
