Old street signs around London are remnants of long-gone Metropolitan Boroughs like Finsbury, St Pancars, Holborn and Shoreditch. Old parishes that became small, almost village-like Metropolitan Boroughs in 1900.

Stoke Newington was one of the smallest Metropolitan Boroughs with its boundaries based on those of the ancient parish. In 1965 small boroughs like SN were amalgamated to create newer and fewer London Boroughs.

Spotted this Hackney poster on Etsy and created a Stoke Newington version of it based on the boundaries of the former Metropolitan Borough of Stoke Newington (1900-65)

Look forward to taking part in the Stoke Newington Literary Festival on June 9th, where I’ll tell the dramatic tale of how Clissold Park was saved from development in the 1880s thanks to an inspiring local campaign led by Joseph Beck. Tickets:
