  • Hopton’s Almshouses in Southwark. Tate Modern is just behind the buildings in the background, which were in one of yesterday’s photos. These amazing little houses are surrounded by beautiful gardens in a private gated courtyard. 
Almshouses are charity houses provided to local people from poorer backgrounds or in some cases widows or former workers, etc. 
I saw a couple of the residents coming and going and I wondered what they thought about how much the area has changed over the years. .
I like that in Black & White, it looks more 60’s tower block than super modern high rise!

  • Dear diary, today in 1968 #londonBridge was sold!
The 130 year old bridge that connects #southwark and the #cityoflondon together is one of London's most busiest bridges. .
The bridge had been rebuild several times once even boasting a row of shops and homes along it.  The victorian employed #scotish #engineer John Rennie, to redesign and replace its medieval predecessor. But, by 1967 it had begun to sink into the Thames and was in fire need of attention.
It was decided that full replacement was more cost-effective than mending it.
On hearing of the coming demolision a journalist turned PR man called Ivan Luckin stepped in and suggested that they sold the bridge instead.
This crazy idea was also given extra support by the #american newspaper mongul William Hurst,  who was known to personally purchase #european buildings and have them rebuilt in #America.
So they put the bridge up for sale.  At that time a oil and aviation entrepreneur and chainsaw tycoon originally from Missouri had sunk a huge investment into developing an area called #LakeHavasu in #Arizona, but it wasn't doing as well as he hoped, he needed a gimic.
Then he found out that the bridge was up for sale and he saw it as the ideal #touristattraction.
So today in 1968 he paid a staggering $2460,000 dollars for London"s old bridge. (more than twice the amount they had expected) and it was duely dismantled brick by brick and shipped to Arizona to be rebuilt there.
It's been long wondered over whether or not he had been misled into thinking that he was buying the beautifully ornate #towerbridge which is often mistakenly referred to as London Bridge however, there is no evidence to support this.
I wonder if any of my friends in Arizona have been to visit it?

  • On Sat, 2pm, Anton Lukoszevieze and Bartosz Glowacki of Apartment House present a recital of music for cello and accordion by Isang Yun. Founded by cellist and interdisciplinary artist Lukoszevieze in 1990, the group has presented performances of avant-garde and experimental music worldwide. The performance will be held in the Main Gallery within Haegue Yang's ' Tracing  Movement' show. Tickets: Free, Drop-in
.
BIOGRAPHY
Korean-born composer Isang Yun’s (1917–1995) life and work are an important ongoing influence for Haegue Yang. Isang Yun is celebrated for his compositions which combine East Asian musical traditions and European avant-garde techniques. Yun gained international acclaim working in West Germany, before his abduction and imprisonment alongside hundreds of Korean intellectuals and musicians in the notorious 1967 East Berlin Incident. Yun’s contentious life symbolises the ongoing ideological divisions of the peninsula, while his work translates impressions from his turbulent transnational biography into a distinctive musical language.

  • @wherethepancakesare in London // When you get a craving for pancakes, it seems obvious to visit a place that tells you exactly where to go! 😄 This is a single pancake with forest berry compote, house cream, crushed violet meringue, toasted almond flakes (I ordered a banana on the side), and a flat white to complete the meal.

  • Uncovering forgotten parts of London at Bankside Yards, where specialists contractors @mcgee_group clear the way for our landmark 1.4m square metre mixed-use development which will bring homes, shops, offices and cultural uses to this prominent Bankside spot. The development is centred around 14 historic arches, which have been closed off for over a century. Exciting times ahead!
