glamourous and grim local studies

Side streets of Chelsea part 2 by @daveinlocal is a lovely blog post.  I am a fan of this blog and enjoy all the posts, and part of it is the diversity of subject matter covered.  This post about Chelsea is grim, with lovely photographs is side streets and back alleys.  These are not pretty photographs, but they are wonderful and amazing.

This highlights the importance in local studies of showing the grim as well as the glamourous.  We have both in our lives and in our communities, and it helps us to understand the past to see this.  It should not be all one or the other.  This is effectively demonstrated in this blog with the latest post being of The ladies and gentlemen: figures in the landscape.
