Hi everyone what do you mean by touch typing,have also found 27 tenison street se1 but these days it is a posh a la carte restaurant am i right?????????????think i may have the wrong area.love mysteries and solving them but this has so far taken six years
hi James Hatts
sorry you did say this may sound silly but does the remaing house have a number and how can i find out about 27 Tenison street or is it going to be impossible.found the address in the 1901 census.my grandparents married dec 1937 at the church we mentioned.another silly question is it a catholic church(a reason for that ).
Sheila - touch typing, is using all fingers from both hands to type, it's very quick, and you can look at what you are typing, or what you are copying from, without having to look at they keyboard to see where your index finger next has to go for the next key.
good speeds can be upwards of 60 words per minute... while learning, you get taught that each key corresponds with a certain finger, so the index finger on my right hand only ever pushes the j u m 7 n h y 6 keys, and the wedding ring finger only pushes the s x w 2 keys, etc. if you start getting ahead of yourself commond mistakes are gettign letters the wrong way round, putting spaces a plac etoo early or late, and using the correct finger but the wronh gand.
sorry that i don't know anything about 27 Tennison st.
i can do touch typing then and still make mistakes did my training at collage and evening class and hated it and some how passed the exams,but did not do any typing again until we got the computer so am a bit rusty.have been told tenison street is no longer standing and is now tenison way with one house on it.may be hard to find out aabout this house,but thanks any way.
Sheila are you sure that the church was St John the Baptist, not St John the Evangelist, which is the large church on Waterloo Road, which would have been just down the road from Tenison St according to the map that Mogoot posted.
this is the info i have on their marriage certificate
soleminized at the parish church in the parish of st johns waterloo road se1 in the county of london
according to the rites and ceremnies of the established church.does that male any sense as i was told it was st johns the baptist which according to this was wrong.
many thanks for replying
There are a couple of good pictures of Tenison Street from the 1930's in the London Metropolitan Archives which should be accessible on the internet (see previous postings) - but I can't get the pictures to come up. Don't know whether its a temporary blip or whether they have withdrawn the service. Anyway image reference numbers are L28154AR and L28015AR. The grey photos make the streets look rather grim but I believe it was part of the carefully planned development by the architect L N Cottingham in 1826. No doubt the street suffered some war damage but whatever was left was swept away for the Festival of Britain.
Incidentally you can see the street on the Waterloo and Southwark map of 1872 published by Alan Godfrey - you should be able to buy that locally.
