Shepherd’s Bush Fire

Crowds look on asĀ fire officers look over the remains of a shop destroyed on the corner of Shepherd’s Bush Green and Shepherd’s Bush Gardens.

The road featured in the picture (Shepherd’s Bush Gardens) was destroyed to make way for the West 12 Shopping Centre during the 1960’s. The location of the lost street was revealed by the appearance of the Shepherd’s Bush Green war memorial in the back of the wider crowd shot.





6.5 Special show at the Hammersmith Gaumont

These were actually scanned from a contact sheet that was included in the box. Obviously here dad was trying out medium format films. The sheet was quite folded and battered which means the image isn’t quite as clean as some others.
The shots are obviously mostly looking toward the excited crowds and only a couple of what is going on up on stage.
