That's the site that sent me the pic. Some of those images are fantastic, especially the ones with the big moored ships with the streets in the foreground. There's a Pythonesque surreality to it...

I love it! Has anyone got any more images specifically of the Old Kent Road?

I've started a collection over at my "virtual museum" here: The idea is to amass a wide collection of images to show the best and worst, past and present of the OKR - culture, work, transport, war - the whole lot.

Please feel free to submit a picture to tumblr or email me for help/more info at:
