Project Description

An exhibition of the lost buildings of Southwark, including Bert Hardy’s collection of photographs of Elephant and Castle taken in the early 20th Century. Due to the exhibition’s popularity due to its topical appeal with significant local redevelopment plans afoot, a second exhibition “Pictures, Places, People: Elephant to Camberwell” followed in 2011 which directly focused on and around the North-South axis of the Walworth Road.

In conjunction with the exhibition, a guided walk ‘Lost Zoo of Walworth’ was conducted with Pasley Tenants and Residents Association and Southwark Council’s Arts Team. An event in Pasley Park about the former Surrey Zoological Gardens off Manor Place.
