Catford and other imaginary places

Missed from my recent South London blog round-up:

The Man from Catford
Three goodies in a row: Catford Bus Garage, Woman from Catford and Babyshambes.

Casino Avenue on made-up places. Here's just a couple I liked:

Surrey Quays: No, Rotherhithe. [Actually, Surrey Docks re-branded. An effacement of working class history? --bfb]

Downtown: Pre-Surrey Quays re-brand of Rotherhithe. Now more-or-less obselete. (Wasn't it also a cheesy club?)

South Greenwich: No, Eltham. Or Kidbrooke. Greenwich council's arsewitted idea.
