Contrasts with Muscat 3a - # 29/2011

The chapel at Ham Common.  Richard commented yesterday mentioning the snese of scale in the photo of the Grand Mosque.  I like the proportions of this little church, and the way it decorates the scene of Ham Common.


  1. Hi Stuart! Sorry for the absence…
    The most incredible contrast is the colour of the sky... ;)

    Well, it seems that Egypt is becoming a risky place to visit these days. So, let’s move and get to the other side of the Mediterranean: Côte d’Azur... Enjoy and have a great weekend!

  2. This was originally St Andrew's Church of England primary school and became an RC church in the late 1960s when St Richard's church was built on the former gravel pits. The present school is St Andrew's with St Richard's.

    The original school was a 2 room school,my parents considered a larger primary school would be a better option so attended Latchmere Road in Kingston.

    The houses opposite the school were built to house the teachers, the biggest for the head master. The plans for these will be on the internet along with plans for planning applications from 1880s to 1960s for the former boroughs that evolved to become Richmond upon Thames. There will be exhibitions next year, showing public buildings that never left the drawing board.

    Thank you for the pictures of my borough, I've lived here for all but two years of my life.
