This is an interesting journey of remembering and learning for all who visit.  A wide range of London Subculture is revealed in these little vitrine-like tables that contain the ephemera such, as invitations, found objects, photographs and other miscellaneous items – dance, fashion, design, architecture, restaurants, nightclubs and bars are all represented in this mêlée.  As well as some fifty of these vitrines there are videos, billboard-size images and installations. All in all a walk into time worth taking.

  1. To repeat the words of Jack Kerouac: “It’s not what you write, it is how you write it.” And you do
    it very well!I simply can not decide if to share your blog
    with my pals or keep it as my very own private secret…

  2. I’ve savored each and every word. Anybody that says that writing is
    a lost art, need to follow this blog.

  3. tumblr.com says:

    Do you imagine blogs like this one confirm that books are
    outdated or that the art of writing had modified without losing any of its energy?
