LOST AND VANISHING LONDON.,  ORIGINAL B/W PHOTOGRAPH FROM THE 1950s

PHOTO SHOWS  :   WHITESTONES POND.,  HAMPSTEAD.,    circa 1952

WHITESTONES POND ON HAMPSTEAD HEATH WAS ORIGINALLY A SMALL DEW POND CALLED THE HORSE POND.  THE NAME WHITESTONE CAME FROM A MILESTONE MARKER.  THE POND WAS ENLARGED AND ARTIFICIALLY SUPPLIED WITH WATER FROM 1890, AND WAS A POPULAR ATTRACTION ON HOT SUNNY DAYS.

AFTER SUFFERING EXTENSIVE DAMAGE THROUGH FIVE YEARS OF WAR,  1939 - 1945,  LONDON LOOKED SHABBY AND TIRED AND WAS STILL BEARING THE SCARS OF THE BLITZ AND BOMBING RAIDS WELL INTO THE 1950s.   MOST OF LONDON WAS,  BY ALL ACCOUNTS,  A GREY AND DRAB CITY, BUT IN 1951, A NOTE OF CHEERFUL OPTIMISM WAS SOUNDED WITH PLANS FOR THE SOUTHBANK FESTIVAL,  A BRIGHT AND COLOURFUL  'PEOPLE'S EVENT' WHICH HAS SINCE BECOME  BETTER KNOWN AS 'THE FESTIVAL OF BRITAIN'.   THESE PHOTOGRAPHS CAPTURE LONDON AT A TRANSITIONAL STAGE,  A TIME WHEN THE LAST PATCHES OF BOMB DAMAGED WASTELAND WAS BEING CLEARED, AND SHORTLY BEFORE THE ARCHITECTS AND PLANNERS BEGAN TO RIP THE CITY APART,  REPLACING HISTORICAL BUILDINGS WITH UBIQUITOUS OFFICE BLOCKS.  DURING THIS SHORT PERIOD BETWEEN THE LATE 1940s AND THE END OF THE 1950s,  MANY OLD BUILDINGS IN LONDON WERE TORN DOWN AND LOST FOREVER. 

THE PHOTOGRAPH IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.
