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.

Can’t fool around with the rent!

 

Today may be April Fool’s Day, but getting the rent paid is no laughing matter. Just finished my rent admin, so luckily my continued roof over the head isn’t about to go in some cruel prank played by life.

It was a different place at night

 

 

A bustling city, with scores of people breathing in the nightlife, letting lights guide them to new experiences amidst the generic urban setting.
