Here’s a Friday selection of signs and scenes that have caught my eye while wandering around London.
Above is Senate House, a natty Art Deco offering in Bloomsbury, constructed between 1932 and 1937.
Reaching 210 feet (64 m) high with 19 floors, this was the second tallest building in London (after St Paul’s Cathedral) when it was completed.
Red paint and stickers.
Musicians wanted, Denmark Street, WC2
Yeah! Go apeshit!
Pipe, grill and fag butt (note to Americans: a ‘fag butt’ is not something you see being saucily jigged about at a Gay Mardi Gras. It’s the discarded end of a cigarette).
Stickers and white wall.
One Comment on “London signs and notices – photos from the city”
Notices on wall in Denamrk Street aka Tin Pan alley. One of the areas under threat from Crossrail and surrounding developments. The music shops and recording studios here are clinging on as they are pushed out by the restaurants and multiples encouraged by, on one side, the New West End Company BID, and on the other, InMidtown BID. Hanway Street the other side of St Giles Circus is already being marginalised. Enjoy it while it lasts before the Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) and their bulldozers move in.
