Angel & Trumpet, Stepney Green
The Angel & Trumpet Public House in Stepney Green was run by my ancestors in the 1930’s. Unfortunately, it was a victim on WWII and was badly damaged and subsequently demolished. I have one photograph that I believe to bethe pub, but it doesn’t show much more that my Great Aunt cleaning the steps.

Blackfriars (1959 - 1965)
I lived in Upper Ground from 1959 to 1964 I was 6 years old my parents Vince and Kitty run the Pub The Angel on the corner of Upper Ground and Bodies Bridge. I remember the ceiling of the cellar was very low and almost stretched the length of Bodies Bridge. The underground trains run directly underneath the pub. If you were down in the cellar when a train was coming it was quite frightening

A ward on the ’Atlas’ (1881) The smallpox epidemic which began in 1881 placed great strain on hospital beds. To create more bed space, the Metropolitan Asylums Board chartered two old wooden warships from the Admiralty - the ’Atlas’, a 91 gun man-of-war built in 1860, but never fitted out for use at sea, and the ’Endymion’, a 50 gun frigate would be used for administration and storeroom. These were converted at a cost of £11 000. The ships were sited off Deptford Creek in Greenwich. The first patients were admitted onbard the 120 bed Atlas in July 1881, by the end of the epidemic in August 1882, almost 1000 patients had been treated onboard the ship, of whom 120 had died.

Sand traps don’t come any bigger than this one on Mars, seen in a view from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter flying high overhead. Marching across the red planet’s rugged Terra Cimmeria region, these dunes will soon end up trapped inside the crater, joining the dust of others dunes similarly vanquished.

More than 3000 kilometres from any continent, Amsterdam Island pokes out from the southern Indian Ocean at a point between Africa, Australia, and Antarctica. The product of a basaltic volcano that was last active about 200 000 to 400 000 years ago, the tiny elliptical island reaches an elevation of 867 metres at its highest peak. As shown by this natural-colour satellite image, that peak was high enough to disrupt the clouds flowing around it. The image was acquired by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 on 2 November 2014. It features mountain-wave clouds flowing in a southeasterly direction on the lee side of Amsterdam Island. Part of the island is visible on the far left of the image.
