Hello! We here at BOST have been working on a project called Memory Gardening and have been doing some oral hisotry interviews with local people particularly seeking memories about playing and using the open spaces around here. We want to put on a small exhibition in the autumn and also expand the archive of photos of parks etc around Bankside, including bomb sites as they're the open spaces that are now built on.
We're also going to produce a new leaflet with a map of Bankside open spaces with quotes and 'before' photos to guide people around.
So we're seeking photos! if you've got photos of the area, from 1900 right up to the 1990s e.g. what Mint Street
Park looked like before the major works in 2000, or Little Dorrit, street parties, kids playing, all sorts, we'd like to hear from you.
And the bomb site sounds a great place to play...
