Featured picture[edit]

Seems a good place to get some photo criticism (self nom) Justinc 23:10, 4 October 2005 (UTC)

Yes, exactly. And I was thinking of nominating a similar image Image:Newbury_Park_Tube_station.jpg LoopZilla 06:59, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

I like that one. Justinc 10:48, 6 October 2005 (UTC)

Holloway Road[edit]

Nice shot of London Met Uni and the Libeskind. I have a shot of the Central Library that is less shadowed, though, maybe more useful in a 'pedia piece, though less arty than yours. Will upload when processed. Still contemplating how to get Holloway Road down to three districts from five. Think they should be Archway (merge Upper Holloway and redirect that term), Nag's Head (replace all Holloway redlinks with this and add a Holloway redirect), and Lower Holloway. But later, finished wikying for the weekend now. Tarquin Binary 13:10, 16 October 2005 (UTC)

I thought you said you had got as far as the library, but couldnt see your picture. Its only 100 yards from the Libeskind. I took quite a lot of Libeskind pictures (though the traffic makes it hard). The one I put under en:Daniel Libeskind I liked better for the building (the people in the photo looked at me, wondered why I was taking the photo and looked back at the building, not sure if that comes across). I didnt realise how shadowed the library was when I took it - this weather, all sun and rain and glare and shadow is really annoying. Upper Holloway is not in my psychogeography, but whats it supposed to be, the bit between Tufnell Park Road and Archway? Cant there be a plain Holloway district? Maybe Nags Head is just a corner (bus destination) not an area? Even though I know it well it doesnt really have names to me. Meant to expand Waterlow Park (and write Sydney Waterlow) tonight but everything got too late (and my memory of a cattle trough in Highgate was not correct, although I found a small fountain with a plaque which kind of made up for it as I wandered too far into the wilds of Haringay). And I remembered why Burdett-Coutts was haunting me as I looked at an inscription on a local building - she used to live at en:Holly Lodge Estate which is why so much about her crops up when I walk around the area. Justinc 23:18, 16 October 2005 (UTC)
Haven't processed and uploaded Library pic yet. Got to the fringe of the Uni, actually. Too busy making sure I got a photo of the humble Fantasy Centre, as rumour has it they are retiring next year - end of an era. As regards the Libeskind, I like the mix of glare and shadow, but that's my own particular taste, like I didn't have a problem with your bus garage with half-seen buses lurking in the shadows. But everyone says I see things funny.
Upper Holloway - nope, not in mine either, but as you can see, it is an entry, and a number of pages link to it. Hence suggest redirect to Archway. I think it's fair enough to have a plain Holloway, but then most of the material for Nag's Head should be put on that page, or even Nag's Head totally redirected, except for a footnote on Holloway. Lower Holloway is unambiguous. In any case, three entries should be more than enough for one road.
Burdett-Coutts - unfortunately, I agreed with the deletion of the Burdett Road entry in Tower Hamlets, and now I keep finding that references to it keep popping up. Typical...
Oh, congrats on your adminship, by the way. Tarquin Binary 18:49, 17 October 2005 (UTC)

Cattle troughs[edit]

Late in the day shoots as ever, but have a twofer for you. You were right about the one near Vicky Park on Lauriston Road, but the moment I saw it, remembered the Mare St one, which is twice the size, but somehow easy to miss (a tricky corner). Have shots from all 4 angles (can read one end inscription) and full-res if you want, these are just quick and web-ready:


Image:Trough lauriston road hackney.jpg

Image:Trough mare street hackney.jpg

I might want to process a bit more to use on a page...

Tarquin Binary 23:25, 20 October 2005 (UTC)

I like the lighting on the one with the Inn on the Park on the background, but the Mare Street one os very impressive (where exactly is it?). Actually in Vicky Park it was a fountain not a trough, but there you are, look for one thing and another turns up... Justinc 10:14, 21 October 2005 (UTC)
West side, junction of Westgate St, it's marked as The Triangle in the A-Z. Yeah, that was the very last shot I took for the day, in fact. Was hoping to look on it as an art shot, sort of elegiac comment on urban transportation. :) I did get the Victoria Park Fountain actually, not far from the trough - about to put it up shortly, will add it to the Vicky Park article. OK, it's there now, at Image:Victoria_park_fountain_1.jpg. Pretty dark I'm afraid, and I've upped the lightness, contrast, and sharpened it. Will do as a placeholder. Tarquin Binary 16:49, 21 October 2005 (UTC)

Cinemas[edit]

Got the Essex Road Carlton shot now, see Category:London cinemas plus lurid Screen on the Green shot too, both heavily processed. Thought it pretty apt that a Jarmusch movie was on, because he always likes to show grungy back lots, which was what I had in mind when including all that brickwork and guttering on the Carlton shot (most photos just show the facade). Have far more Islington, and Hackney, shots now than I have copy for in the pedia, have to start justifying them... Tarquin Binary 19:03, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

Whitechapel drinking fountain[edit]

Sorry about small snit on WP, must be losing my sense of humour :( Anyway, I've just put up a shot of the ornate drinking fountain on Whitechapel High Street I thought you might like, but wondered about the enigmatic inscription - 'Erected 1860 by one unknown yet well known'. Google is no help, only two references so far, both of which misquote it, and one of which tries to link it with The Ripper (of course, but in 1860?). I think you likely know more than I about this stuff, maybe it isn't much of a mystery...

Anyway, images are on: Category:Tower Hamlets - there's also yet another cattle trough, this one in Spitalfields. Tarquin Binary 14:19, 29 November 2005 (UTC)

Ah a mystery, how nice. Dont think I know, but will see if I can work it out. I think I have all the ones uploaded so far - Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association. I need to retake some. There are also 2 fountains and a trough just up the road. And a nice trough on Clerkenwell Green. Justinc 01:39, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
I've got so far, with the help of a friend from Mile End. The park behind was part of the grounds of St Mary Matfelon, which was the original 'white chapel'. In fact the junction is still that of White Church Street and Whitechapel High Street (yawn, talk about redundancy...) OK, that church was rebuilt in 1874 and not rebuilt after being nuked in the Blitz (outrageous, why? - and I'm an atheist, I find still find that weird).
The fountain was, as I say, built in 1860, but was moved to its present position in 1879, suggesting it was placed in storage from 1874-1879. I can't read part of the inscription on the photo, will have to revisit. I think this really is a genuine mystery, because I ran into this reference below when researching, and I wasn't even thinking of Pevsner (reference is near the end, scroll way down, but it's a good essay by Barker anyway, nice) - and PDF alert:
The point being that no-one seems to consider it anything other than a bizarre urban enigma. Oh well, off now to trace the course of the Hackney Brook. Not. :) Tarquin Binary 03:23, 30 November 2005 (UTC)
Havent found anything yet; still working on it. I usually try to take a few closeups of the inscriptions as they are sometimes of interest. One I added today was the lcoal estate agent (firm still going) who made his money on valuations for houses demolished to build railways in Kentish Town. Not quite sure what to do with this sort of information at the moment. Almost enough to start a kind of Victorian Bcher style typology of fountain architecture... Justinc 00:27, 1 December 2005 (UTC)


Yeah, I'm holding off on recording too many plaques and inscriptions until I get a bigger memory stick - there's just too many, but they do contain these entertaining little nuggets of info, sure. Then there's the funny little (often off-the-shelf) decorations that the Victorians and Edwardians added to their houses, sometimes in ridiculous places. Must put up the bizarre dragon/gargoyle pic I have from Upper Clapton Road, somehow appropriate for 'Murder Mile'...
Oh, just noticed you now have a London fountain and trough category - have a couple of others that might fit, one by the Geffrye - and the Myddleton statue at Islington Green (already uploaded) is actually a double drinking fountain. But, question - are you sure that all of those fountains came under the auspices of the Metropolitan Association? The troughs, sure, but I'm not certain that the Whitechapel one, for example, wasn't simply built into the fabric of the old church, so it might have been a CofE thing... Tarquin Binary 17:23, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
The genuineness question has occurred to me. Most of them do have a reference, but for quite a lot it is on a metal plate (locked) that presumably goes to the pipes inside, and many of these are missing. There are a couple I am not 100% sure about - Clapham Common doesnt mention the society but is in good condition, but it doesnt seem to have been mandatory. Charles Dickens jr mentions the Buxton Memorial Fountain which (no longer) has any mention of them. I think they pretty much had the water provision infrastructure sewn up though I am not sure. The association was closely connected to the church (and temperance movemen; water not beer). I have a book coming shortly that may have more information. I hadnt noticed that Islington Green was a fountain actually; I would add anything to the article unless there is evidence that it is unconnected. Justinc 22:19, 1 December 2005 (UTC)
Well, added another grand one that I rescued from Spitalfields, very Hawksmoor (but you can see the heavy post-processing from the state of the foliage - it was pretty dark). This is right next to the trough, both are just south of Christ Church. This fountain is definitely Met Cattle Trough, could just tell that from zoomed inscription. But this is a veritable plumbers' corner, right by the two is an underground loo (I've added a pic to the Tower Hamlets category showing this plus a Big White Van, gawd I hate how they manage to get into frame...), and I cannot believe there is no connection, maybe literally :)
I have, by the way, been avoiding uploading pix of conveniences (though I do image them) because of many obvious associations and the risk of vandalism, but they do actually go with the whole theme of waterworks (smiley again) and public benefaction, these were important public works in their own right. There's also the way that, in the best cases, they are being interestingly repurposed (Shepherd's Bush, Camden, but I don't know what is going on with this one in Spitalfields, looks re-derelict actually). So maybe we need another category there? Oh, forgot about the temperance connection - that could well have something to do with the Whitechapel fountain if it was part of the church. And, finally, Myddleton - I lived in Islington for many years, and I only realised it was a fountain when I came to take that shot. Got close-ups of the spigots, process them later. Tarquin Binary 01:43, 2 December 2005 (UTC)
Thats a very nice one. I havent really been bothering much with conveniences, though there are indeed some of note (and the repurposing is interesting; the one you photographed is/was Public Life, a nightclub which I havent been to but a friend of mine DJed there once, and a curry house in Whitechapel that I had to eat in just because you couldnt set up a really bad curry house in a toilet could you). Reminds me must go and take some photos of the Princess Alexandra in Holborn, which has original marble urinals, although I think most of the handbasins are replica. Which reminds me again there was a Kentish Town etched pub mirror maker who I was going to find out about too. Justinc 11:52, 2 December 2005 (UTC)

Terrapins and the Hackney Brook[edit]

Clissold park terrapins 1.jpg

Cute terrapin shot right (one fell off the log when I was taking the shot, sad), but have more of the lakes as such. They are not the same water as the New River, you can see how clear the water is. It is likely that they are simply supplied from the supply to the north, but that only makes the Hackney Brook more mysterious. Tarquin Binary 02:39, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

IP advice requested[edit]

I've just found this pic I took on Stoke Newington common. Was going to improve the piece, which is slightly derogatory (well, my fault, I wrote it), but the problem is that the pic is of a copyrighted notice albeit displayed in a public place. Can we use it? If not please delete it, I haven't added categories.

Pity if not, because it's very informative, and I like the faint reflection of the trees in the glass. Tarquin Binary 19:25, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

no, dodgy. You can recreate the same information though. Justinc 01:36, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
No time for recreation :) If you can delete it as an admin, that would be cool. I'll try to negotiate that map on my NE London site when I get the site running properly. Thanks for clarifying. Tarquin Binary 06:48, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
I'm not an admin on commons - suggest tag it as {{deletebecause|accidental copyvio}}. Justinc 02:01, 14 December 2005 (UTC)

District heating[edit]

Took me a little while to figure out this structure:

Pimlico accumulator tower 1.jpg

A whole new infrastructure thing. I know that Priory Green Estate had/has DH, so wondering where else there are towers like this, and where the water comes from (the one in Pimlico used water from Battersea Power Station). Oh, and what the tower actually does (accumulate, I guess, sounds like a flow buffer/regulator) Tarquin Binary 13:04, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

Supplemental - bunked off work, since light was good, to get shots of Stoke Newington west reservoir, castle etc, inc more New River stuff. Also have pix of gauges and bits of machinery from the old pump hall, which is now the Leisure Centre - not the climbing centre. Got enough now to do a decent job on the Stoke Newington article - finally. But no time to process them right now - later. Suggest we now need 'Rivers and canals of London' and 'Lakes, ponds, basins and reservoirs in London' categories. A very watery day... Tarquin Binary 16:01, 24 January 2006 (UTC)

have been too busy to do much - have a few pics to upload but got to everywhere too late. Will try to find out what that tower does. Where is the leisure centre nr the castle? Justinc 00:11, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
Stoke newington library 1.jpg
Glad you chimed in on the DH article - I feel it is as much an issue of civic planning as engineering, hence, as you say there, history. Bizzy too, but have to take walks to sort brain, so ended up with extra shots. Check A-Z, the leisure centre is the funny unlabelled white inverted T-shape at south of reservoir, north of the castle. Will upload a couple of shots now to make clear - yup, they are now on water infrastructure. By the way, the camouflage on Stokie town hall is well there. Check the new shot I put up. There was a strange quality to the light today that brought it out. The funny thing is that it also runs all over the nearby library (right). Now I've looked for that camo to show clearly about 9 times since last summer but it has only been really clear today. Tarquin Binary 01:30, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

Modular housing and stuff[edit]

Only just realised yesterday that the Raines Court pic I had from Stokie Common is claimed by the Peabody Trust to be only the second multi-story modular residential block in the UK. So naturally I went looking for the very first one on Murray Grove and have put a pic of that up too. Also their cute new development on Provost Street nearby. May be worth expanding the Peabody Trust piece on WP. WP unsatisfactory on modular dwellings, only have 'Modular Home', which is a very American entry with stuff on zoning laws etc. Just to chip in for the UK, I've put in a Raines Court pic and qualified some of the text as US-specific, but needs more, maybe.

Also 2 more fountains (like what they've done with the railings there) + a trough. More including a decent pic of the old waste-burning power station yet to go up, too. Tarquin Binary 19:39, 28 January 2006 (UTC)

Ah you found that one. Its on the Fountains Assoc website with no note as to where it is, with the railings like that. Funny I walked along Pitfield Street not that long ago and missed it. Cool to have it. The whole housing thing is really interesting me (was looking in the history of Middelsex stuff and found a bit more about Waterlow, but I am looking out for a book really as I feel a bit lost amongst random facts. Also realised that they havent written the volume for St Pancras yet, which is really annoying). Also desperately searching for some more biographical sources on architects - Powell and Moya have very scanty articles. But the last week has involved lots of work so not much done (been doing javascript and php of all things, well out of my usual line). Justinc 02:39, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Well, if you have any problems with JS/PHP, do feel free to run them by me. I've had to do an awful lot of both, though doing ColdFusion this week, have to knuckle down to that seriously, tho not before putting up pix of old waste-powered power station at Shoreditch. Yeah - housing's a lot more interesting than I thought. Rewriting the Stoke Newington piece gradually, so likely to add whole section on post-war redevelopment. Even more important with those Tower Hamlets districts... Tarquin Binary 13:49, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
More modular stuff of two types. Went off to do Leamouth, not just a housing thing, but of course got the Container City pix, which I have just put up, and noticed a Poplar modular building on the way. Not very good shot, but I've uploaded it anyway - poplar_modular_building_1.jpg, at least it has a couple of gasometers. By Countryside Properties, and looks like exactly the same system building as Raines Court (Yorkon?), but haven't time to check totally right now. At least I can now fill out both the Leamouth and Blackwall entries on WP and add something to the Poplar one. Really need London 5 - I could have found a lot more in Poplar with its help, I'm certain... Tarquin Binary 19:50, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

Zeppelin plaque[edit]

Just to say I took the liberty of adjusting the levels on this, because I added it to a couple of WP pieces and it was kinda dark. I lost the meta-data though, sorry, should stop using my older version of Photoshop (it loads faster). Tarquin Binary 14:50, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

I found some more info on that raid the other day [1]. Which articles did you link it to? Justinc 15:30, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
Good info on the overall damage, must add it. I put the plaque pic on Zeppelin, which is confusing because it has the Kaiser authorising city attacks in 1916 not 1915. I haven't disentangled that yet, I'm not sure what the original article means, but have to be careful because it's an FA. I also added it to Bomb - now that has civilian bombing starting with Guernica, so I added a WW1 section. Tarquin Binary 16:35, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
Looking at it I might take another photo - you can see the flash, the barrel distortion is bad. Unfortunately its almost on the ground and the pavement isnt wide... Justinc 13:42, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

Bascule bridge[edit]

The one at Rotherhithe is now in place (another district on WP with no pix, by the way). Wondering how many of those there are, the one at Shadwell is an old well-known landmark, but thought it unique. Have a lot of Thames shoreline still to cover to the east. Tarquin Binary 18:37, 12 February 2006 (UTC)

Havent been to Rotherhithe for ages - might take a trip. The Thames needs to be documented well as it was so important. However my next task is Frognal (not even an article - unusual for a proper historic village), and Maxwell Fry (who built a house in Frognal is it happens, also stuff elsewhere). Justinc 22:13, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
I have a mutiny. My party want to do Croydon, which be not right ('cos all God's chillun take pix there, just like Docklands).
Landlubbers, the lot of 'em. I will still, however, find some mud down there among the aerodrome fragments, I'm sure. And it's bound to have Drinking Fountains...
No worries, I'm doing Rotherhithe/Bermondsey all by myself soon. That was a great scouting trip. Tarquin Binary 00:43, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
Croyden people cant type - just corrected a link to it. Stubbed up w:en:Frognal but need to go and take lots of pics when I get a chance, and finish writing it when not falling asleep. Maybe there is a fountain in the shape of a plane? Got to troughs to do where my pictures keep on not coming out well - too much traffic and no space on the pther side. Might be an early morning outing. Justinc 00:53, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
Ah i understdn this non typing thing, been drikning Old Peculier myself, do thay have that in Crydon? I is kursed, they is ilterrate knetish pesants without benifit of troffs for cattel. Any fule kno. Tarquin Binary 01:14, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
Hadnt realised how bad my typing was - should have realised as I kept trying to write article on Frogna; instead of Frognal. Justinc 00:29, 15 February 2006 (UTC)
Only kidding, but somehow it always happens (to me too) when you slag off someone else's copy. Tarquin Binary 08:35, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

Listed stuff[edit]

St Columba's is there now, though light was not very good today. I think I see the point of the Grade I listing - the whole complex of buildings together is quite impressive.

Had forgotten I'd got a pic of Pevsner's favourite little II* group on Stoke Newington High St. Just noticed on Friday that one of our better local Thai restaurants has moved to 189 - it's been closed up for many years. Pity I couldn't have got Fiona to have her birthday there, but the interior is not going to resemble the original much I guess. Got the iron church in Haggerston for good measure. Tarquin Binary 19:03, 21 February 2006 (UTC)

Ah will have a look. I have quite a few that I havent got around to writing articles on. Soon. Justinc 01:22, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Bit of a snowball effect going on on the WP listed buildings list. I've been batch-processing a lot of c/p'd lines for London, but other regions growing, should never have started on GII*... But it gets interesting as to what is there and what isn't after a bit. Will do the EH Westminster bit when get time later. Articles, yeah, I remember working on those... Tarquin Binary 01:55, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Yes, it looks good. What a lot to do. I like the iron church - half painted. Justinc 08:55, 22 February 2006 (UTC)
Only G2, but it's pretty distinctive. But this listing thing has decided me to put a Listed buildings section on the WP district pages when I'm doing them. Obvious GIs, if any, and GII*s, but natable GIIs or streets with lots of them would be OK too, I think... Tarquin Binary 00:59, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Metropolitan Drinking Fountain Haringay 2005[edit]

Noticed your Image:Metropolitan Drinking Fountain Haringay 2005.jpg photo. There's a misspelling. It can either be Harringay or London borough of Haringey Haringey, but not Haringay. As far as I'm aware it's not Harringay(but please tell me if I'm wrong). So it must be London borough of Haringey Haringey. Where exactly was the photo taken by the way? (Tried signing this comment, but my Wikipedia sign in doesn't seem to get picked up. If you want to contact me, I'm hjuk who's done all the work on the Harringay Wikipedia pages. (Ditto Image:Haringay Camden boundary.jpg which should definitely be -ey if i't Camden border)


Etymology, The names Haringey, Harringay[8] and Hornsey in use today.... en:London_Borough_of_Haringey so there you have it. The object Image:Metropolitan_Drinking_Fountain_Haringay_2005.jpg will have to be moved, or we just learn to live with it, perhaps? Gordo 13:38, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Justinc!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

File:Ad-Ed7-metfountaintrough.png[edit]

Pay attention to licensing

File concerned:
Ad-Ed7-metfountaintrough.png

Wikimedia Commons only accepts free content : images and other media files that can be used by anyone, for any purpose.

File:Ad-Ed7-metfountaintrough.png seems to be free (or it would be proposed for deletion), but it was identified as having a wrong license. Usually, it is because a public domain image is tagged with a free license, or because the stated source or other information is not sufficient to prove the selected tag is correct. Please verify that you applied the correct license tag for this file.

If you believe this file has the correct license, please explain why on the file description page.

Category:Industrial_London[edit]

Commons-emblem-issue.svg Category:Industrial_London has been listed at Commons:Categories for discussion so that the community can discuss ways in which it should be changed. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this category, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for discussion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it. If the category is up for deletion because it has been superseded, consider the notion that although the category may be deleted, your hard work (which we all greatly appreciate) lives on in the new category.

In all cases, please do not take the category discussion personally. It is never intended as such. Thank you!
