Endell Street Open Air Swimming Pool Featured Related Images Print

Endell Street Open Air Swimming Pool

A view of the open air swimming pool in Endell Street, Holborn, London, on the site of Holborn Borough Council's Public Swimming bath which was pulled down in 1938 in preparation for the building of a more modern bath. Reconstruction was prevented by the outbreak of war and the cavity of the old Bath became a static water tank to aid fire-fighting during the blitz in London. The wartime decontamination centre, seen behind the pool surmounted by the Borough's Coat of Arms, provided dressing accommodation for 200 persons an hour. Now part of the Oasis Sports Centre

Reflections of Late Afternoon Landscapes by The Grand Union Canal

A close-up of a Little Venice sign painted on a boat. In the background canal water, reflections of the rows of residential buildings along the canal. Late afternoon landscapes reflective of Spring by the Grand Union Canal (GUC), Regents Canal and Little Venice, London, England, United Kingdom. The Commercialization of the GUC, Paddington Arm has led to inexorable growth in the numbers of boats heading into London. This is putting pressure on services, pressure on moorings, much as other aspects of London life are experiencing stresses and strains. Canals are almost linear villages, they have services and communities growing along the canal. They are a city within a city. However, growing on Londona??s waterways, presents another problem; a growing group of vulnerable people. Along the canals there are those who live on boats after marriage breakups and other life crises, former soldiers, and those who have spent redundancy packages on a new life in retirement, only for it to not work out. Boaters apparently want a zone-one location to live, work and play, opting to live on boats instead of finding housing in lower-cost locations. Boaters use public services provided by councils but do not pay council taxes towards those services. A few send their kids to schools claiming they live in the borough and others even register to vote. This overpopulation of the canals in London, 2000 moorings against 3000 boats, along with the revitalization of the Paddington arm of the Grand Union Canal is making house boat living on London canals largely for the affluent. A narrow boat with limited living space at the edge of the Grand Union Canal near Brentford with a year's mooring lease costs A£60, 000 to A£80, 000

Glass lantern slide from a lecture, entitled 'Some Historic Cornish Beauty Spots', given by Cornishman and amateur photographer, Major Arthur William Gill, in around 1925. He was well known in Cornwall and elsewhere during the 1920s and 1930s for his presentations of stills and cine film to many groups including The Royal Institution of Cornwall, Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society and the London Cornish Society. The quarter plate slides which he took prolifically with his 'ordinary camera' are, in many cases, colour. These were painted by his own hand to great effect
