Patrick Moore at Greenwich

Over the years Patrick Moore, who, against stiff competition, not least from Colin Pillinger, has to be one of Britain’s most colourful characters in astronomy, has visited Greenwich a fair few times. Over the years he’s taken a bunch of photos, both academic and snapshot, on slide film, and now he’s making his collection available online via a couple of web-savvy pals, and I’ve been directed to it by Peter (who, if you recall, sent those great pictures of the inside of the power station.)

There aren’t a huge amount of pictures of ‘old’ Greenwich (as opposed to ‘new’ Greenwich at Herstmonceux) but those that are there are definitely worth a peek for some recent-past (though largely undated – a crime I’m often guilty of myself) views of a familiar sight.
