Here from the east end of London

Cor blimey..luvva duck, guv'nor..another Eastender! Where abouts? I'm in Hackney
Well, Well, Well, we're virtually next door - I'm over in Walthamstow

I'm a few miles over in Essex. Hornchurch near the Kent border to be precise. There seems to be a fair few of us East Londoners. Hope we're all going to be meeting at the London Steampunk Spectacular on January 23rd.

Would that make them members of the cognoscenti?

Cognescenti...You mean they smell of gear oil?

I think we need to set up a separate thread, but it is a good idea. Cockneys are born within the sound of Bow Bells, what is the equivalent for Cogney's?

A Cogney had therefore better set up a thread within this Board, I would suggest "Hello, We Are Cogneys" Now Show reference, and look towards electing a Coggely King and Queen and setting about recipes for jellied Air Kraken. I sadly am not a Cogney, unless of course you consider that as big ben is broadcast on radio and TV we are all Cogneys. Londoners at least should be eligible.

Jellied Air Kraken, steampunk rhyming slang, coggly Kings and Queens a lot of potential there I think there for a bit of fun.

I am afraid that contraction would be 'brass' also slang for a common prostitute, so calling a steampunk lady 'a bit of a brass' is not flattering.

Maybe 'Gears'n'Junk' then? Making the contraction 'Gears' or 'Gear' which was used in the 1960's to refer to something excellent as in 'Fab Gear'.

Oooh! I lived in E 17 for a few years back in the 80's. Hartington Road..used to drink in the Coach and Horses on the corner of James Street...and the Royal Standard opposite Blackhorse Road tube....*sigh* happy days!

Ah yes - The Standard - so many happy (if slightly inebriated) nights I spent there in the nineties.

One of my fave Walthamstow pubs is the King William IV - micro brewery combined with wood, copper and brass Smiley

The micro brewery does some nice brews, including a tasty light and refreshing Ginger Beer which happens to be about 5 % - SOOOOO nice in the spring

Well well well!!
Im currently stuck up in Yorkshire on the borders of West and North yorks just outside Skipton. not much steamy happening up other than the two steam railways. Embsay to bolton abbey railway and the more famous Keighley and Worth Valley railway (home of the railway children film from the 70s)   Whenever I get a chance I escape back to Nottingham for a pint in the Sal not exactly the most local local but and old fav!!!

Although I have posted this upon the other thread, it would seem prudent to cover all bases. I hail from the favourite resort of your esteemed East-enders of Southend-on-sea, in deepest Essex
