Co-founder of Our Town Story. If you have any questions about the site, or wish to provide feedback, please visit the Admin forum and post in the appropriate place - we'll do our best to help you out as quickly as we can!

We really want Our Town Story to be an album for your old photos, to fill in the gaps in the history books of our villages, towns and cities. We would also love for those pictures to be able to help others - for instance by using reminiscence therapy in treating dementia

We're still a work in progress, and we appreciate all suggestions and observations!

Image Details

This is the Shaftesbury Hotel, in Seven Dials, just off Shaftesbury Avenue. The building is still a hotel, the Radisson Blu Mercer Street, but looks to have been slightly altered, especially on the Monmouth Street side. There are no cars visible, only horses and carts, but the 1900 date is just a guess.

Hint: Drag the orange pegman to see the Streetview image...
