Alan Dein has worked with local people on some superb local history projects in Kings Cross. The London Street Photography Festival have been in touch to say that:
'Kings Cross Voices' Alan Dein will describe the changing faces of King's Cross, from its industrial heyday, to its deteriation after the Second World War, and now its revival as a major regeneration site. We'll explore and photograph hidden architectural gems as we wander the back streets north, south, east and west of the railway stations.
'After your walk you will be invited to upload your photos to the festival's Flickr group to share with others. Oral Historian and Broadcaster, Alan Dein, was the co-ordinator of King's Cross Voices. To hear and find out more about the collection please visit the website.
This event is FREE but please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your space.
Assemble outside the German Gym Pancras Road by 1400 on 16 July.
