A blog about London, that wonderfully photogenic city full of lovely old buildings, tourists sites and great scenery...
But not this London, where you find these sort of people wandering the streets, I am guessing they are advertising the "Mikado", I really don't think people wander round all day looking like this.
Or even this London. full of new and modern buildings, it's not even about the trooping of the colour, the queen, black taxi's, red buses or the London bobby.
No, I am blogging about the other London
This London, the bit the tourists don't get to see.
The great 60's social housing experiments where the planners thought we would all love to live in this utopia, a true paradise.
Now this is (or was) the Ferrier estate in Kidbrooke, South East London, now as it happens this is right by the rail line and main road in from the Channel Tunnel to Central London, they plan to have the whole lot torn down by the end of next month.
Now some might cynically suggest this is to keep it from the eyes of all those tourists coming to the Olympics, others suggest that is just a coincidence.
Yes it's monochrome because quite frankly this estate never did and doesn't now deserve the benefit of colour.
No more words, the pictures tell their own story, they say a picture paints a 1000 words.....
