Map legends
Question, I have been looking at quite a few maps dated 1950 and 1900, and there are many abbreviations on the maps, where can I find the lists to unravel these ?

Regards

On the dole in north London
When I worked at the dole office in Medina Road in the 1980s, "Archway" meant the social security offices which were in Archway Tower at the top of the Holloway Road. By all accounts it was a nightmare location for staff and claimants alike. This was when Margaret Thatcher’s government forced unemployment to rise to over 3 million (to keep wages down) and computerised records where still a thing of the future. Our job went from ensuring that unemployed people got the right sort and amount of benefits at the right time, to stopping as many people as possible from getting any sort of benefit at all. Britain changed irrevocably during this period and has never really recovered. We lost the "all in it together" frame of mind that had been born during the second world war and became the dog-eat-dog society where 1% have 95% of the wealth and many people can’t afford to feed their children. For me, the word Archway symbolises the land of lost content.

Baeethoven St School, also an Annex for Paddington College of FE.
In the early 70’s I took a two year science course at Paddington CFE. The science classes were held on weekday evenings at Beethoven Street school, overseen by chemistry teacher, Mr Tattershall.

My mother and her sister were born at 9 Windsor Terrace
My mother, Millie Haring (later Miller) and her sister Yetta Haring (later Freedman) were born here in 1922 and 1923. With their parents and older brother and sister, they lived in two rooms until they moved to Stoke Newington in 1929. She always said there were six rooms, six families, a shared sink on the first floor landing and a toilet in the backyard.

Cutty Sark

Cutty Sark for Maritime Greenwich is a light metro station on the Docklands Light Railway in Greenwich.

Cutty Sark station was named for its proximity to the Cutty Sark ship in the Maritime Greenwich district. It is the most central of the Greenwich DLR stations.

Cutty Sark station opened on 3 December 1999 as part of a 4.2-kilometre extension of the DLR from its former southern terminus of Island Gardens to Lewisham. Since its opening, the extension has seen tremendous growth as a result of connecting the Isle of Dogs financial centre with Greenwich.

Sand traps don’t come any bigger than this one on Mars, seen in a view from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter flying high overhead. Marching across the red planet’s rugged Terra Cimmeria region, these dunes will soon end up trapped inside the crater, joining the dust of others dunes similarly vanquished.
