  1. High Paddington - Sergei Kadleigh, 1952 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    A brochure about a plan to house 8,000 people in 30-storey towers over Paddington Goods Yard in London.

  2. The 1950s Flying Saucer Conventions at an Underground Rock House | Messy Nessy Chic

    Lots of great photos from LIFE magazine, and a good story. Very ‘Gods Without Men’. (via @GreatDismal)

  3. Light Entertainment (London Review of Books)

    Andrew O’Hagan on Jimmy Savile etc. Quite good on the general difference in TV and radio culture in the 50s/60s/70s, although it still feels like a very brief skim over the hard-to-grasp era/topic/atmosphere. (A bit late to this, catching up.)

  4. Photos of my models

    Amazing photos… of *models*… keep watching until you see the little models to scale. (via The Online Photographer)

  5. We Are The Lambeth Boys

    Really, really lovely 1959 documentary by Karel Reisz about young men and women at a London youth club. Fascinating for both similarities and differences to now. Do watch. 49 mins.

  6. LRB | David Edgar : Stalking Out

    Review of a John Osborne biography with lots of interesting history about 1950s/60s London theatre, especially ‘Look Back in Anger’, Stratford East, and the Royal Court, and whether theatre was shaken up or not.

  7. Royal Festival Hall | Information Pages

    The RFH are selling mats made out of the 1950s carpet they took up for their refurbishment. Nice, but £55.
