Before the Olympics Stratford Marsh 1982-1992

Photographer and writer Peter Marshall began documenting the area which would become the site of the London Olympics in 1981 – from compulsory purchases of parcels of land – capturing ‘Stratford Marsh area close to the main Olympic stadium, now largely transformed out of existence.’ A sleepy light industrial area which now finds itself latched onto and part of gentrified London – his photos are an invaluable record of what was in our words ‘before.’  A part of London that was even left behind in the Victorian era.
