This is such a good idea! I don't know if it's of any help but Wandsworth council arts team kindly gave me a grant to help deliver community workshops and make a map of the hidden treasures in Tooting. i've just finished it and the places are on the map here: www.welovetooting.com

1. There's an old painted advert in an alley opposite the new Waitrose on Upper Richmond Rd that says 'windows cleaned carpets beaten'. I think it's about 100 years old. 2. There's a sign from ww2 In Russell Yard, off Putney High St that says 'fire watchers bell'. 3. There's an ammonite in an external of st. Mary's church in Putney High St. I have photo's of the above on my Flickr account. Search my name and you'll find them.
