My apologies for not having posted any new material for some time. The pressure of work this year has been overwhelming.

Several people have posted comments on a previous post about life in Bermondsey in the 19th and 20th centuries. One person in particular requested pictures of Dixs Place. Another reader has now sent me the following photos. The quality is not great but we have to be grateful that photos survive at all. Dixs Place consisted of tenement buildings and it was subsequently redeveloped. I have no date for the demolition of the buildings.

This photo was apparently taken during the party held to celebrate the Silver Jubilee of King George V, in 1935.
