There are some very positive comments on facebook (and no negative ones).

Re: Sir George's Residential Home for Respectable Girls 1886

There are several maps of 19th Century London available at http://mapco.net/london.htm. I also like http://www.locatinglondon.org/, which lets you switch between a modern map and two older maps. Then there are OS maps at http://maps.nls.uk/

I can spend hours looking at old maps.

Re: Class sizes

I can't make the Forum's search work, but using google to search for: "class size" site:http://www.chforum.info finds a few threads, for example: http://www.chforum.info/php/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=3934&start=255 http://www.chforum.info/php/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=3762&start=15 http://www.chforum.info/php...

Re: Where have all the posters

The facebook group is not as busy as it was when it started. Perhaps we've just said all there is to say.

I used to like Fisherman's Friends. Do they still exist? I am reluctant to try a web search.

Re: Astonishing new feature

I mostly use Firefox, with the "Adblock Plus" extension, and don't see any ads at all on the Forum. I just disabled it, and am now urged to "get ahead with a University of London MBA" at the top of the page, and something about wesite design at the bottom. Does the fact that I normally block these a...

Re: A Happy and Peaceful Christmas

The light is fading here, after a mild and windy day. No snakes here, but plenty of ghosts of Christmas past.

Merry Christmas everyone.

Re: CH food

I loved sausage hotpot, but don't think this recipe is quite right. I'll accept kidney beans in place of the macaroni, but potatoes on top (with crunchy bits) are essential.

I can't see the link on HOGOF, but I think maybe the clock is working now. I searched on http://www.rightmove.co.uk for flats for sale on the old school site, and looked at the pictures. There seem to be at least three different versions, with the clock showing different times. I would have posted t...

Re: All Change Miss Tucker?

I thought (at the time) that DR was using her forthcoming retirement as an excuse to avoid any changes in the last few years. But I was a discontented teenager and wanted everything to be different. There must have been plenty of scope for Miss Tucker, but I left at the same time as DR, and didn't w...
