Kate Reading , BBC London's picture researcher, offers up photos of the capital as you may never have seen it before
Kate has launched a section of the site dedicated to black and white pictures of London as it was and, hopefully, as you possibly have never seen it.
"Through my work at BBC London over the last five years, I've come across some amazing photos of a bygone era. London is, and has always been, a fascinating and ever-changing city. There's photos of key events in history such as the Blitz and Queen Victoria's funeral but also a glimpse of real people's lives.
"With these photo galleries I hope to uncover some real gems and hopefully spark off memories and open people's eyes to London and Londoners down the years," says Kate.
The section will be updated weekly and whilst pictures will be sourced in the main from the Getty Images archive, Kate would love to see your pictures of London life as you knew it.
So if you have any old and interesting pictures that tell a story of London past, please email her email@example.com and she will endeavour to put them on the website.
Remember to include a line or two about what you are sending and most importantly a contact number or email address. Also, please have a look at terms and conditions before you send images.
