While I've lived in SE1 for years I'm new to the E&C. I'm desperately looking for old pictures so I can get a better feel for what it was before it changes beyond recognition. Oddly I've found very little on the internet, can anybody point in the right direction? Anything for day dot to 80s/90s would be great.

You can access images of the E & C at Southwark Local Studies Library (behind John Harvard Library near Borough corner), or in the book The Elephant and Castle: A History by local historian Stephen Humphrey.

There is a history book on the area. I had a quick google search:

I've also seen this or similar local history books being sold at Electric Elephant Cafe on Crampton Street se17
