Brixton Station Road railway arches
Photographs of a disappearing Brixton
(Photos ©urban75. Photos January 2002, feature 13th September 2010)
I can't remember what prompted me to take
this series of photos of the railway arches along Brixton Station Road, but with all of the frontages being modernised shortly afterwards, they form an interesting historical essay.
All the photos were taken on the 22nd January, 2002 (unless otherwise stated).
Electrical substation door, Brixton Station Road.
'lenIN' was a bit of a busy tagger around the arches.
This sign still exists, although it's rapidly losing its letters.
The uninviting entrance to Brixton railway station.

Panagea pizza/pasta restaurant (now the Brixton Bar and Grill) previously hosted a popular late night bar.
The Brixton DIY Centre still lives on, one of the few survivors on Brixton Station Road.
