    Really would like to catch this film, any other dates? The use of signage without consultation by Hackney housing to stamp their ownership on our homes (& power over residents) really rings true. They recently put up 8 no smoking signs in a communal passage way that serves 4 flats ostensibly in order to stop a 70 year old Vietnamese guy smoking on a communal balcony with no roof. ..i wasn’t happy about his smoking, but I much preferred it to their nasty little officious signs.

    Hi Andrea,
    I enjoyed reading this article even though I missed the screening.
    I am 63 now but I was brought up from the age of 6 weeks at 40 Richardson House (long since demolished), and then at 9 Samuel House. It was a tough area and we used to play out in the London smog in the late 50s early 60s.
    I did visit a few times and saw a lot of ghosts from my past.
    Thanks for doing what you did. Email me if you ever need any of the little information I have about that time
    John Hirst

      Hi John Hirst,

      I am a teacher from the Haggerston area trying to track down those who have experienced the changes in the local area, would it be ok if I contacted you directly? My A Level Geography students would greatly apricate it!

      Many thanks
