I was born in the upstairs front room of 28 Tyrrell Avenue in August 1938. I was a breach birth and quite heavy ( poor Mum!). My parents moved to that end of terrace house from another rental in St Mary Cray where my three year older brother had been born in 1935. The estate was quite new in 1938 and all the properties were rented. My Father was a Postman. I grew up at no 28 all through WWII and later went to Little Dansington School

Tenant at Westbourne (1807 - 1811)
I think that the 3rd Marquess Townshend - at that time Lord Chartley - was a tenant living either at Westbourne Manor or at Bridge House. He undertook considerable building work there as well as creating gardens. I am trying to trace which house it was. Any ideas gratefully received

The tracks through Roding Valley were opened on 1 May 1903 by the Great Eastern Railway (GER) on its Woodford to Ilford line (the Fairlop Loop).
But the station was not opened until 3 February 1936 by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER, successor to the GER).

Roding Valley is the quietest tube station, each year transporting the same number of passengers as Waterloo does in one day.

Quantum Cloud and Slice of Reality (1999) The Quantum Cloud is a sculpture located in the River Thames next to the Millennium Dome. It is 30 metres high and designed by Antony Gormley. It is constructed from a collection of tetrahedral units made from 1.5 m long sections of steel. In designing Quantum Cloud, Antony Gormley was influenced by Basil Hiley, quantum physicist. The idea for Quantum Cloud came from Hiley’s thoughts on pre-space as a mathematical structure underlying space-time and matter. The nearby ’Slice of Reality’ by Richard Wilson comprises of a sliced vertical section of an ocean going sand dredger. The original ship was reduced in length by 85%, leaving a vertical portion housing the ships habitable sections: bridge, poop, accommodation and engine room. The slicing of the vessel opened the structure, leaving it exposed to the effects of weather and tide.

A framing section of the Blackwall Tunnel being constructed at the Thames Ironworks (1895) On Saturday 22 May 1897, the western Blackwall Tunnel, designed by Sir Alexander Binnie and built by S. Pearson & Sons for London County Council, was opened by the Prince of Wales. It was then the longest underwater tunnel in the world at 4,410 feet and was initially lit by three rows of incandescent streetlights. To clear the site in Greenwich, more than 600 people had to be rehoused and a house reputedly once owned by Sir Walter Raleigh had to be demolished. Costing £1.4 million and employing 800 men, it took six years to construct, using a tunnelling shield and compressed-air techniques

Pirates were publicly hanged at Execution Dock in Wapping. The bodies of the pirates amongst them were placed in a cage and brought further downstream to Blackwall Point, the northernmost tip of the Greenwich Peninsula. They would then be left in the cages and left to rot - a warning to ships passing through into London.
