Literary London - Day 1

22 September 2014

Region: London

Prompted by the 22,000th upload to Bleeding London, we’re looking for literary London this week.

Congratulations to Anika Richardson for uploading the 22,000th image to the project!

Our first day in literary London is Dickens based.  We’re looking for streets called “Dickens” (there are fifteen of them) or “Charles” (about seventeen) and streets with names that have some relation or resemblance to the title of a Dickens novel (such as the six Pickwick named streets, the one Bleak or the three Dorrits).

Bonus points will be awarded for pictures from any postcode that have a Dickensian feel to them, so workhouses, cobbled streets, carriages, old lanterns, a bit of fog etc. (BPCC 2209)

We’re still looking for post-people for some of the postcode areas. If you can help co-ordinate the streets that have been covered and arrange some coverage of your area, please drop us a line at
