The Redbridge Museum

 

 

This morning I visited the Redbridge Museum and Heritage Centre in Clements Road, Ilford, in the town centre. It’s a small civic museum featuring objects and ephemera from the borough of Redbridge from the Victorian era up to the 1990s. A fascinating snapshot into the history of our area, ideal for local history buffs and schoolchildren studying history projects. There’s no dino skeletons here but there’s a mammoth skull displayed just outside the museum.

Crowd thrills

 

My reaction when the idiot housemates living with me upstairs finally learn to use the bathroom properly and not pee with the door wide open :/

I got it

 

 

Ariana Grande – this is just the opinion of an old-timer, folks – but I’m not a fan. Always half-naked with rather average music and not a good role model for little girls, but I rate her for her genuine sympathy for the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing in 2017. One example where a celeb was there for her fans.

The Umbrella Revolution

 

 

In 2014, Hong Kong saw protests against the downgrading of democracy in the Chinese-ruled territory. Many protesters came with yellow umbrellas which soon became a symbol of their agitation.
