So when Colin and Liz went out one Sunday into Woolwich armed with a camera, and an old set of photographs I had high hopes that what they would come back with would be interesting and maybe even fun.
The quest was to match the old faded images of Wollwich from a century ago and chart the changes that have happened along with a sense of whether the changes were better or worse.
But I do have to admit that that some of what we inherited from the early 20th century was by now grimy, unfit for purpose and quite frankly should have been demolished ages ago.
More over planners do not always get it wrong even if commercial considerations do sometimes create ugly buildings which brutalize the environment. But not these figures. They both intrigue me and make me smile and you can't say fairer than that.
