Fire engine in the Hackney museum: The last image uploaded to Wikipedia by Kbthompson, in April 2010
Kbthompson (born 1955) died in London, England on December 10, 2010. If you leave a message on his talk page, his family will see it. -- Ssilvers (talk) 04:27, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
Kbthompson made over 40,000 edits on Wikipedia since June 2006 and was a most courteous and helpful administrator on this site since 2007. His contributions of research and writing to artices about music hall, London theatre, and London, in general, were very significant. I will miss him for his collegial and generous spirit. -- Ssilvers (talk) 17:00, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
General interest in Hackney & The East End. Producer of tortured and lengthy, uncited prose - so, all collaborating editors welcome! Some knowledge of local history - moderate ability to research the rest. Also, interested in listed buildings and music halls.
Will add a 'fact' anywhere, if it helps illuminate the world.
I was born in the East End to a long line of ne'er-do-wells, at last count stretching back to 1585. A friend once said his family came to Bow to sell horses, they're still there because the public transport is so shit. My family's experience must have been much the same.
I hereby award you this Working Man's Barnstar to recognize your tireless contributions large and small to WikiProject London and elsewhere in Wikipedia, many of which are of a repetitive or tedious nature. Contributors like you increase Wikipedia's quality. =) Ssilvers 20:24, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
