The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

28th July 2017 Montague Rd Leytonstone London E11. I imagine the crew were doing tower block checks in the wake of the Grenfell disaster. These Waltham Forest/Ascham Homes tower blocks were recently named on the BBC website as "Tower blocks with a high/substantial fire risk" based presumably on the council's own fire risk assessments which they FOI'd. The blocks have had serious fires in the past one of which I attended caused by overheating hair curlers.
