' This is the site of Little Clarendon Street which was one of the worst slums in London. It was demolished shortly after the photo was taken when the Sidney Estate was built on the large vacant building site shown in the photo just to the North. My Great Great grandfather pitched up there from Nenagh in Tipperary probably in the mid to late 1870s. He also died there as a penniless cord Warner (shoe maker) in a condemned hovel in 1918. His son (my great Grandfather) lived in that street as did my Grandfather. Altogether my family had five separate addresses at least in Little Clarendon Street alone and many more across Somers and Camden Town. Little Clarendon St was a horrible rat bug and fleas infested slum. Good riddance. There is nothing of it left now but it’s ghost presence is represented in the course of a fire access track at the rear of the flats which were subsequently built there. '
