The Ghosts of Old London

To dispel my disappointment that I cannot rent that Room to Let in Old Aldgate, I find myself returning to scrutinize the collection of pictures taken by the Society for Photographing the Relics of Old London held in the archive at the Bishopsgate Institute. It gives me great pleasure to look closely and see the loaves of bread in the window and read the playbills on the wall in this photograph of a shop in Macclesfield St in 1883. The slow exposures of these photographs included fine detail of inanimate objects, just as they also tended to exclude people who were at work and on the move but, in spite of this, the more I examine these pictures the more inhabited they become.

A very interesting look back in time.

Life looks pretty rough in those neighborhoods of old London.
Although it seems very clean.

The only things missing are the carts of Plague victims...
Pix only 200 years earlier would be decidedly different.


The absence of evidence is NOT the same as the Evidence of Absence...

also anything prior to the fire of 1666, did any of the medieval city survive?
