Its mad seeing stuff like this, makes everything seem so much more real

hopefully they will have some done containing the war aswell

I think it'd bring a lot more perspective on the some of the soldiers that fought if they could be seen like this

atm it seems looking at them they just seem like people from the past..

It's amazing looking back at old photos. Can only Fully appreciate them of course if you have been around the area. Manchester Council website has loads of them so I'm sure there must be a site for London ones too.
