  1. Welcome to the Real Time Club

    “Founded in 1967, the Real Time Club is believed to be the world’s oldest IT dining Club.” (via Haddock)

  2. Street Traffic Accidents (Metropolis). (Hansard, 18 May 1914)

    “…can [the Home Secretary] see his way so to alter or relax the police regulations as to enable the more expeditious slaughter of animals meeting with serious accidents in the streets?”

  3. Sohei Nishino - Diorama map London (Detailed info)

    Stunning photographic collage photo-maps of cities. Currently at Michael Hoppen Gallery, SW3 3TD until 2nd April. (via Blech)

  4. MySociety » Blog Archive » Seeking to Contract an Interactive Designer for FixMyTransport

    The good folks at mySociety are looking for a freelance designer to make their new project beautiful and lovely.

  5. The Sartorialist: On the Street….London Color Story, London

    Some Londoners appear to be dressing themselves after that Hollywood movie teal-and-orange colour grading craze.

  6. David Long :: Hidden City

    “The Secret Alleys, Courts and Yards of London’s Square Mile” Sounds like a good read.

  7. London’s first aerial walkways | News | Property news | Homes & Property

    I’m assuming it’s just the Standard’s subeditor who thinks these are the “first aerial walkways” in London, rather than architecture writer Ruth Bloomfield. That would be silly… 

  8. File:Bill of Mortality.jpg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Grim government statistics for 1665. No pretty graphs.

  9. Hangover Lounge

    Sunday afternoons at the Lexington on Pentonville Road. Sounds very nice, if I wasn’t already spending Sunday afternoons agonising over having achieved nothing useful yet each weekend.

  10. When Should I Visit Science Museum?

    What a lovely idea - which museums are most or least likely to be busy today?

  11. Barbican - Images | Jamie Smith

    Some nice photos of the Barbican by a student who’s doing a project on it. They’d be even nicer if they didn’t have a copyright statement stamped across their middles though.

  12. LRB · Iain Sinclair · The Raging Peloton

    He has a nice turn of phrase but Iain Sinclair is a gloomy, misanthropic reactionary who thinks the only people who can ride bikes authentically are the 1950s working class and eccentric poets. One wonders why he still lives in London.

  13. Exquisite Tweets from @candicecbailey…

    Whoops! One careless word and suddenly people think there’s a shooting in Oxford Circus. @candicecbailey appears to have deleted her original tweet now, although it’s not really her fault. (via @abscond)

  14. Movieos - London again

    Tom Insam, ex of Dopplr, is back in London and looking for a job. You should try to hire him, because he is good.

  15. trendwatching.com: Join our team

    TrendWatching have two full-time jobs going in London. A decade ago I expect I would have been super keen on these.

  16. LRB · job

    Now that’s a job advert. No faffing. “The ‘London Review of Books’ is looking for an editor, preferably one with an interest in politics and history. Would suit a young, disaffected academic.”

  17. Cyclists in the City: HGVs - Time to make common cause with pedestrians and motorcyclists?

    Some figures on how pedestrian and cycle casualties are caused in the City. Only 5% of pedestrian casualties are the result of cyclists, although pedestrians generally feel cyclists are dangerous. 

  18. YouTube - The London Nobody Knows (Part 1 of 4) Documentary

    ‘The London Nobody Knows’ has found its way to YouTube. Watch, if you haven’t seen it, and you like/know London, in case it disappears.

  19. That Gormandizer Man: How London buses are numbered - TfL come up trumps!

    A lovely and interesting email from TfL. I love how historic numbers are maintained/adapted. It’s the kind of thing that has no direct benefit to a company’s profit, but it makes the world a better place.

  20. Flickr: The Broad Street & old Liverpool Street station, London Pool

    Some good old pics. I should remember a lot more of the old Liverpool and Broad Street stations than I do.

  21. Old maps of Southwark - Southwark Council

    Not just maps of Southwark, but good resolution PDFs of historical maps of London. Good. (via @alanconnor)

  22. LRB · Vol. 33 No. 1 · 6 January 2011 · letters

    I must have missed the government’s embarrassment and apologies over its peaceful citizens being treated like this by the police in the student protests.

  23. Mare Street’s failed music venue Ocean to reopen as Hackney Picture House next year - News - Hackney Gazette

    Ooh, that’s good. I wish it had been a decent cinema when I lived up the road, rather than the ill-thought-out Ocean. (via @catfunt)

  24. Unboxed Consulting - Blog - TechHub and Silicon Roundabout

    James Darling on good form. It’s great that co-working offices like TechHub exist for people who want them, but TechHub’s press releases are a bit overblown, like something from one of the previous booms.

  25. File:Wardour St Name Changes since 1585.png - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I had no idea Wardour Street had been so variable over the years. (via gwire’s Tumblr)

  26. We Made This Ltd - Ministry of Stories & Hoxton Street Monster Supplies

    Very lovely - London’s own version of 826 Valencia (the “Pirate Shop”) and similar. (via Chrisdodo)

  27. Free Map of London (Communities and Open Space Survey) 1943 from the Probert Encyclopaedia Map Archive

    More precise than the previous 1943 map of London areas and/but very nice. (via Blech)

  28. Scattered Satellites - Purdom, Abercrombie, Hilberseimer, MARS - Links

    Click the thumbnail of the 1943 ‘The County of London Plan’. Lovely, lovely map of London’s rough areas, as queried earlier (thanks Blech).

  29. CBRD » Histories » Ringways » Background » Wartime plans

    I like the colours of the County Of London Plan, 1943.

  30. Utopia London

    Awesome-looking film, about post-war modernist housing development in London. There’s a screening near Farringdon on 14 Dec. Also, where’s the map in the ‘About’ section from? (via City of Sound)

  31. A Room to Let in Old Aldgate | Spitalfields Life

    Some lovely 19th century photos of the area around the City, Spitalfields, Barbican, etc.

  32. Designswarm thoughts » Blog Archive » The politician’s handbook to East London

    Alex in very, very good form on the East London Tech City initiative. I have the same unease about equating small start-ups with providing good space and conditions for huge tech companies. Related, but different things and requirements. (via Blech)

  33. The government shouldn’t hang on Google’s every word | Charles Arthur | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk

    Yes, it’s good the government is making positive noises about technology, start-ups etc, but also, this. (Although, are you really surprised a government, especially Conservative, is taking policy advice from large companies?)

  34. Google LatLong: History in the Unmaking

    Very nice - Google Earth layers of London and Paris in 1945. I also didn’t know Google Earth had lots of different post-2000 layers (for London at least). (via Booktwo)

  35. Thisisntfuckingdalston.co.uk

    Lovely kind of cross-section of psycho-geographic-neighbourhoods or something. I’d love to see lots more of these. (via Tom Taylor)

  36. YouTube - Look at Life - Top People, 1960

    Men in flat caps without harnesses working high above the City of London (Golden Lane Estate, London Wall, etc). Lots more ‘Look at Life’ on the right, too.

  37. YouTube - BBC Town Planning Programme circa 1961

    Featuring the Barbican area, London Wall, etc. A shame the clip is so short. More, more!

  38. DecisionLab » FacilitationCamp

    Next Friday and Saturday in Vauxhall. Might be interesting / useful? (via @wendyinfutures)

  39. London Cycle Hire Explorer

    Tom Taylor’s nice site for exploring data about London’s cycle hire stations - graphs showing their activity over time.

  40. The Sweeney Forum • View topic - London Wall

    Stills from films/shows like ‘Blow Up’, ‘The Italian Job’ and ‘The Return of the Saint’ featuring London Wall and Barbican highwalks, compared with photos from 2010.

  41. Twist in the sale as Whitecross Street shops go for £3.5m | Islington Tribune

    Those derelict shops/flats on Whitecross Street have been sold at auction.

  42. Barbican - Explore Barbican

    90 minute guided tours of the Barbican, every couple of days for the rest of the year.

  43. Finsbury market trader wins battle to stop flats and shops grab | Islington Tribune

    From a couple of months ago about the derelict shops on Whitecross Street that are now up for auction for £3 million.

  44. 3 bedroom house for sale in St Pauls, St Pauls, EC1A

    Finally, I didn’t know that Christopher Wren church tower on Newgate Street, near St Paul’s, was a house. Only £4.5 million to you!

  45. 4 bedroom house for sale in 41 Cloth Fair, London, EC1A, EC1A

    I’m also fascinated by this huge £5.5 million house on Cloth Fair, just south of Smithfield Market. So big! So expensive!

  46. Commercial property for sale in 141-157 Whitecross Street, London, EC1Y 8JL, EC1Y

    Those derelict shops on Whitecross Street are up for auction, which sounds good. “Only” £3 million…

  47. IanVisits » London Underground’s “secret” tube station

    A fake tube station used for training staff in an office block. (via @jameswallis)
