Wow, beautiful area with lots of history and character! It's the kind of place I like to take late night strolls through just to soak up the atmosphere.

These photos of London are great Orange Alert!
Its refreshing to see views of the real, non-touristy areas of London.
It looks like you really explored many nook and crannies of this great city.

I'm a big fan of photos that depict authentic aspects of city life. The ubiquitous tourist circuit shots can get tedious even if the photos themselves are often well composed etc.

I very much enjoyed this glimpse of working class London. Nicely done Orange Alert!

Here's hoping gentrification is kept reigned in and prevented from displacing local residents and turning once vibrant areas into generic middle class consumer wastelands.

So great pics so far!
I agree! And often a city's "beautiful" (i.e. wealthier) neighbourhoods are rather boring and sterile.

Great pictures! About 6 years ago when i visited London the first time i stayed in a cheap novotel in Hackney. It was exactly like shown in the pics. You can walk trough a romantic looking street, with flowers and trees, but than turn a corner and all off a sudden feel like you are in the ghetto Keep em coming!

Probably replacing pipes. You've never seen roadworks before?

^Maybe because it's too narrow. I thought it's where you lay your wires underground. Sorry for my ignorance.
