Photos taken around Brixton, including a private view at Photofusion.
Sir Henry Tate's bust outside the concrete wasteland that is Tate (ahem) 'Gardens.'
Old fire station on Ferndale Road, Brixton. See 1905 picture.
Broken umbrella and road sign, Valentia Place.
Mural, steps up to Brixton railway station.
Mural in the arcade leading to Brixton railway station.
Traffic wardens on the prowl.
This narrow arcade linking to Electric Lane was built in 1929. The frontage on Brixton Road used to be a house with the exit at Electric Lane being the property's mews.
Original Victorian Bon Marche sign.
Looking up at the Victorian grandeur of Bon Marche's buildings. Constructed in 1877, the department store was built on the site of nursery grounds.
Tragically still rotting away, there's doesn't look to be too much hope left for the Gothic three storey building above the excellent San Marino cafe on 401 Brixton Road.
Traffic cones, Barrington Road.
Electric Lane - not bad for a one second hand held shot!.
Trent Parke: dream/life and beyond Private View at Photofusion, Electric Lane.
Trent Parke was the first Aussie to become a member of the uber-prestigious photo agency Magnum, so it was great to see some of his work in downtown Brixton.
