Look at that iconic propaganda image - the Peabody Trust bringing light and trees into the awful gloom of the slums of the Borough.

And Mapmaker had the temerity to claim they would probably have soot-washed the buildings, when we discussed the square's history on another thread - can it really be over two years ago!
