Backgarden in the past

Do you have pictures of the Backgarden area from the past (the past defined as pre-2000), or do you have memories we can record of shops, pubs, characters, etc. If so please get in touch. The picture below is of the VE Day party on Prospect HIll.

We’d like to hold a Backgarden memories exhibition next year.

  1. If you look closely you can just about make out George on the roof of the pub. Probably.

  2. We have thousands of photographs in our collection. Check the Flickr gallery first ( but then if you email us at and list a few locations you’d like to see more of, and we can take a look.
    Just remember that copyright and other restrictions may apply so you would need to check with us for anything other than private or educational use.
