Time Out Top 50 Site!

Woot! It was great to see urban75 being listed in Time Out’s “Top 50 London Websites,” especially as were number one in the ‘communities’ section. Nice!

urban75 - featured pages, R A Gurr, Dairyman, 80 Atlantic Road

Elsewhere on the site, I’ve been obsessively updating the Brixton History features, posting up old billboards and adverts and taking a modern day look:
2-4 Atlantic Road, Brixton
58 Atlantic Road, Brixton
80 Atlantic Road, Brixton
Walton Lodge, Brixton

Quin & Axtens, 422-438 Brixton Road, London SW9

There’s also a big feature on Quin & Axtens, a long-gone grand department store in Brixton Road.

Public Toilet, Tate Library Gardens, Brixton, London SW9

If proof were needed that perhaps my obsession is going a little too far, my recent feature on the Public Toilets in Tate Library Gardens could be it!

HAMMERTON BREWERY, London SW9

Sadly the Lost Pubs section keeps on growing, with new features on the Loughborough Hotel and the Hammerton Brewery.

Still to post up are pictures from the fabulous Actionettes night at the 100 Club, Oxford Street. I’ll sort them soon – honest!
