  1. Yeah just what the UK needs ..More palatial living spaces for folk with too much money while the rest of us get screwed in to the ground .

  2. well cameras were the same .No such thing as a colour camera ..It was film that was different so probably Mono film WAS cheaper but not only that a lot of “archtectural” shots looked better in Monochrome.

  3. when the docklands was first built us peasants were told don’t worry there will be housing for the working class what a load of crap then the rich folk built walls down to the river bank to stop folk using the foot path or was it to get to there nice boats parked up this is just another kick up the arse for the working class of the late great sw London

  4. I never knew that, Stuart. I always assumed there were colour cameras and black and white cameras! It actually makes sense to me, now I know it, because I know roughly how a camera works.
