It seems to have been an age since I posted here. It has been ages since I posted anywhere at all. I am focusing all my energies on completing a book-length history of Commercial Drive in the 20th century. This has been a 15-year project so far, but the freedom to write over the last two months has allowed me to know that I can get this finished by summer. I am currently working my way through a huge body of never previously used research materials and structuring the written work as I go.
If anyone reading this has knowledge of the Drive before 2000, especially family stories that give insight on the way people actually lived, I would welcome any decision to share them with me. Full acknowledgements will of course be given.
In the meantime, I will keep an eye on this site and post whenever I can. Thanks for reading!
