A snapshot of London’s history


London’s rich history is showcased at the Museum of London near Waterside Park. 

Exploring the history of London couldn’t be easier for residents at Barratt London’s Waterside Park development. The Museum of London is less than 20 minutes away on the DLR, and over the next couple of months, the Photography of Christina Broom exhibition is open to the public for free.

Regarded as the UK’s first female press photographer, Christina Broom had a creative and bold spirit, revealing unique photos of the Capital at the start of the 20th century. One hundred years later, this new exhibition reveals her story and showcases many never before seen images.

Curator Anna Sparham said: “It’s the first time that her story has been brought to the fore. She’s someone whose work has really been fairly under-appreciated but she is widely agreed to have been a pioneering female press photographer in the UK.”

Waterside Park is a new riverside development of 780 studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments. The final phase is Kingfisher Heights, a 13-storey tower and four-storey building built around a central courtyard next to the award-winning Thames Barrier Park.

Barratt London is also proud to be collaborating with curators at the Museum of London to learn more about the history of the sites we build on.
