Place in Print stocks a variety of Dulwich themed prints, posters, books, maps, homewares, clothing and gifts. Dulwich is a small area in South London consisting of East Dulwich, West Dulwich and Dulwich Village. It is home to the Dulwich Picture Gallery as well as Dulwich College (both of which feature in other work by South London Prints).
Peckham Rye Lido
Opened in 1923, Peckham Rye Lido was situated to the north of East Dulwich Road, and provided local residents with 180 feet of open air swimming pool. After 60 years of use, the lido closed in 1987, and unable to find a buyer, the council eventually covered over the pool with earth and grass. All that remains today is a large blue fountain that once stood at the northern end of the swimming pool.
In 2014, a campaign was started to encourage Southwark Council to reinstate the Peckham Rye Lido. The campaign momentum is building, and Place in Print were approached with a view to creating a masthead for the campaign's social media profiles. We then struck upon the idea of creating a proper print out of the image, and offering it for sale to the public with a share of the proceeds going towards the campaign.
