    I need to find London Slums and tenament buildings circa 1912 and also a large industrial laundry for a feature film. Can anybody suggest a good area for this??

    Tricky brief, there is a section of camden market that we used on importance of being earnest, for a working class slum. Also the interior of the old mill next to 3 mills could be transformed into a laundry, period interior, and cobbled streets outside, georgian exterior buildings. Hope you are well.

    Hi Mark,

    Here are some ideas (including the ones Christian mentioned)



    Kind Regards,


    Dear Mark,

    I would like to offer you Lodz, Poland as a great impression of London slums from that period. There are lots of great (meaning not so great) brick buildings and stone pavements etc. I attach some reference photos, but that’s just a fraction of the locations available. I’m with a Polish production company that would be more than happy to arrange everything here. I’m sure that the expenses would be significantly lower here.
    If you’d be interested or cared to see more photos feel free to email me at

    Best regards

    Marcin Nowak
