Rosebrook Chronicles The Hidden Stories

Collection by Helen Christmas


Abused as teenagers, three young adults strive to repair their broken lives; Robin has ambitions to rise to power, while orphaned siblings, Beatrice and Peter, yearn to find one another. This is a story that combines social history with domestic noir.

London - Carnaby Street (1968)

"Swinging England" was the fad in 1968. Carnaby Street had shops with "mod" clothing and other popular items. It still does. Lady Jane, on the left, was the first ladies' fashion boutique on Carnaby Street. I went into a store called "I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet." It sold men's clothing, and items with the Union Jack in unlikely places, like on wastebaskets. Carnaby Street is now the center of a pedestrians-only shopping area. This is my most viewed photo, with over 6,300…

St Dunstan's church, Stepney Green, London

St Dunstan's church in Stepney dates from not long after Stibba, the Saxon warrior who gave Stepney its name, first landed. This is Stepney parish Church and dates back to the tenth century. Dunstan (c. 909 – 988), was made Bishop of Worcester then of London and finally Archbishop of Canterbury in 961. He is reputed to have pinched the devil's nose with iron tongs, hence the carving on the right hand side over the doorway into the church. Click here for more information about Stepney's…
