Ethelburga Estate
The Ethelburga Estate - named after Ethelburga Road - was an LCC development dating between 1963’65. According to the Wikipedia, it has a "pleasant knitting together of a series of internal squares". I have to add that it’s extremely dull :)

The Beatles on a London rooftop
The Beatles’ rooftop concert took place on the rooftop of the Apple Corps building in London. It was their final public performance as a band and was unannounced, attracting a crowd of onlookers. The concert lasted for 42 minutes and included nine songs. The concert is remembered as a seminal moment in the history of rock music and remains one of the most famous rock performances of all time.

The Bombing of Nant Street WW2
My uncle with his young son and baby daughter were killed in the bombing of Nant Street in WW2. His wife had gone to be with her mother whilst the bombing of the area was taking place, and so survived. Cannot imagine how she felt when she returned to see her home flattened and to be told of the death of her husband and children.

Malcolm Davey at Raleigh House, Dolphin Square
My former partner, actor Malcolm Davey, lived at Raleigh House, Dolphin Square, for many years until his death. He was a wonderful human being and an even better friend. A somewhat underrated actor, but loved by many, including myself. I miss you terribly, Malcolm. Here’s to you and to History, our favourite subject.

Clapham Junction

Clapham Junction railway station is a major transport hub in Battersea.

Clapham Junction is on both the South Western main line and Brighton main line as well as numerous other routes and branch lines passing through or diverging from the main lines at this station. Despite its name, Clapham Junction is not located in Clapham, a district situated approximately 1 mile to the south-east.

On 21 May 1838, the London and South Western Railway (L&SWR) and opened its line from Nine Elms as far as Woking. A second line, initially from Nine Elms to Richmond, opened on 27 July 1846. The line to Victoria opened by 1860. Clapham Junction opened on 2 March 1863, a joint venture of the L&SWR, the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway and the West London Extension Railway as an interchange station for their lines.

The railway companies, to attract a middle- and upper-class clientele, calculated that being upon the slopes of Clapham’s plateau would deserve the ’Clapham’ name, leading to a long-lasting misunderstanding that the station is in Clapham rather than Battersea.

Each day more than 2000 trains, over half of them stopping, pass through the station, more than through any other station in Europe. Interchanges make some 40% of the activity and on that basis, it is the busiest station in the UK.
