   Contemporary view of the area - viewing direction is appoximate

The bombing of the Second World War meant that some whole streets were wiped off the future map. Rackham Street, in London W10, was one of them.

On the left (south) side of the street, a local tradesmen's trolley can be seen - possibly a knife sharpener.

However, a clue to the empty streets can perhaps be seen further down the street. A huge gap in the houses shows the bomb damage from 1940, some ten years before.

The photographer of these shots toured streets, perhaps knowing the fate of the area. The view would be utterly transformed by subsequent redevelopment in the early 1950s.

John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers an area from Greenford in the northwest to Hammersmith in the southeast.
