We found this remarkable photograph in the Brockley Society archives: a massive group portrait of the men, women and children who gathered on Hilly Fields, Brockley, in August 1918 after a procession commemorating the start of the First World War on 4 August 1914. See background on the original photo and current events, including press reports of the time.

Inspired by this photograph we took a new one on Sunday 19 July 2015, inviting anyone who lives in or feels any connection with Brockley. For this contemporary portrait of the people of Brockley we commissioned the photographer Simon Terrill.

We will offer a limited number of large prints as well as affordable prints for the public to buy as a record of the day.

We are grateful to our sponsors:
