The old WhizwrinklyHello and welcome. My name is Barry and I am based in Bethnal Green in Tower Hamlets, the very heart of the East End of London (England).
If you visited here before November 2020 you will notice a very great change to the layout. Full details on the updates page, but basically the main change means that if you are using a desktop PC or laptop, you will now have to read down each column from left to right instead of across the page. Sorry for the inconvenience but it makes it more convenient for phone viewers.
I hope new visitors will find my site  informative. If you want to know a little about the Cockneys, growing up in the 1950's East End or the history of The City of London this is the site to bookmark.
The name One-off came about when I used to design and print individual greetings cards and Tee shirts. Now it’s one-off wall art print or the occasional web site. If you have any comments or suggestions please contact me.

England’s Glory

The City of London

The East end and the Cockneys

PatrioThree Lionstic? Feeling gagged by so called political correctness? Think it's racist to fly the Cross of St. George? Or just want some information about the patron saint of England? If so, this is the page to go to. There is also a list of our Kings and Queens through the ages. Go there

A brief City Corporation logohistory of the original “Square Mile” from Roman times onward. As my interest in the City grew, so did the content. My interest grew so much that in 2008 I joined a City University course to become an official City of London tour guide, and passed the exams in 2009. Go there

’Ave a butchers at this (Butchers hook = Look). You can pick up a bit of rhyming slang, learn about today’s changing East End or see what we got up to as East End kids in the 1950’s. If you’re too young to remember the 50’s then have a look, it might surprise you. If you are old enough to remember those days it may bring back a few nostalgic memories.

The Victorians in London

The lQueen Victoriaast section to be added to the site, and was inevitable really. It leads off from both the East end, and the City pages to give a small insight into the great Victorian age. The vast gap between classes, caused by one thing only; money! The Victorians were also good at sweeping things under the carpet to prevent feeling guilty.
