Anyone know anything about Robert Brook who used to run the site? I don't want to breach his copyright/otherwise nark him by posting the data elsewhere to prevent its being lost into the www ether. Or has the site closed down because all this data was breaching someone else's intellectual property rights?
I've no idea whether Robert would want us to preserve his efforts for posterity, as he was once involved with the Wiki Wiki web
http://phpwiki.sourceforge.net/phpwiki/WikiWikiWeb which seemed to support the view "Zen finds beauty in the imperfect and ephemeral."

Edited 10 May to "Bermondsey History in Peril" to see if new subject line attracted any more interest.
It did - thread title amended 11 May
I hope you get thrashed by dusty academics about minute lapses in your historical precision, and taking your beatings like a good boy, you continue to refine your historical record to the point where it becomes definitive.
Please tell us more about Dr Salter.

An extremely useful site if you are looking for old webpages that are no longer cached on google, or generally available is:
you simply type in the old web page, and then you can choose the year (or the month) that you want to view the page. Its not completely comprehensive, but it has an awful lot of old websites before they got updated. Its particularly interesting to see how some local government website news stories get re-written!
