Ghost signs of the former William Whiteley's Depositories, Kensington Olympia, London
Not much time for commentary this week I'm afraid, but just about enough time to share these pictures of the signage on the former William Whiteley's Depository, which sits alongside the railway line heading south from Kensington Olympia station. It was a b...
Not much time for commentary this week I'm afraid, but just about enough time to share these pictures of the signage on the former William Whiteley's Depository, which sits alongside the railway line heading south from Kensington Olympia station. It was a bit of a challenge to find a good angle, ...

A short Urban Wander around Queen's Park and Kensal Green, London
Unfortunately I had nowhere near enough time to do this area justice, and only managed the briefest of urban wanders during a short lunch break. I've posted about the Kensington Gasworks previously when I wandered along the Grand Union Canal, but had not se...
This was a curious old van. I've seen ones similar to this used as coffee shops, but this one just seemed to be full of cardboard boxes, with a foliage trim to the windscreen. Maybe it's work in progress and will transform into something wonderful. Old Citroen Van, Queen's Park, London ...

Starting at the Beany Green café in Sheldon Square, where they make ...

A short wander around Horniman Gardens, Forest Hill, London
Only a brief post today, but hopefully the few pictures make up for the lack in quantity. I had the opportunity to venture south of the river last week, and actually quite far south, to a part of London where I'm pretty sure I've never been to before, Fores...

I Think I've Hit My Mid-life Crisis - a Vinyl Obsession
So, as I alluded to in my previous blog post, I seem to have hit my mid-life crisis. Whilst I haven't ruled out getting a ridiculously fast car, or running off with someone half my age, my crisis seems to have centred itself around an obsession for vinyl. H...

An Urban Wander near Gloucester Train Station
Having arrived too early for the hospital visiting hours, I decided to take a short wander to see what was around. I knew the area near the hospital was close to the one remaining Gloucester station, but was amazed at the size of the area that the old railw...
Having arrived too early for the hospital visiting hours, I decided to take a short wander to see what was around. I knew the area near the hospital was close to the one remaining Gloucester station, but was amazed at the size of the area that the old railway sheds and sidings used to occupy.

As it becomes more and more difficult to get outside in the light during the week, I am resorting back to my summer holiday snaps for today's blog post. Although it seems like a distant memory now, we had three wonderful weeks on holiday in the US back in July/August this year.

Story
Introduction
Avid music listener and collector since the late 1970's. I like all sorts of genres ... punk, post-punk, new wave, industrial, ambient, krautrock, alternative, indie, goth ... naturally I have quite a few items I no longer need in physical format, so here's a link to my records and CDs for sale

I'm also interested in most things vintage, and have 100's of vintage postcards for sale and vintage magazines for sale

Having grown up in one of the London suburbs, I'm also interested in John Betjeman, J.G.Ballard, London suburbs, Avengerland (Borehamwood area where the classic 1960's and 1970's TV shows were filmed).
