What is Strandlines?

HOW TO CONTRIBUTE A STRAND

Strandlines Digital Community explores one of London’s most famous streets, the Strand, and its past and present communities.

This site is an archive from which experiences, memories and reflections about the local area can be retrieved; a gallery where photographs, drawings and films can be viewed.

But it is also a place where residents, workers and visitors can engage with one another by sharing stories and images.

Each contribution from a past or present Strand dweller adds a strand to the digital community, traversing a range of themes and places; reflecting upon the present and delving into the past.

A strand could be:

  • An anecdote about an incident that took place on the Strand recently, or many years ago.
  • A story about one of the Strand’s many lines: backstreets that connect the Strand with Covent Garden; the parallel line of the River Thames.
  • A photograph of a building on the Strand, or of someone who used to live or work in the locality.
  • An object found on or near the Strand.
