View from Waterloo East station
View from Waterloo East station
This is the view from Platform A at Waterloo East station. The survival of terraced houses on the left is quite a surprise as they are so close to the South Bank. Ian Nairn in Nairn's London published in 1966 says "Real cockney, still in good condition, still where cockneys ought to be, embedded in Central London. Here is true architectural purity ... nothing but yellow London brick and unselfconscious self-respect."
