|Small but sweet (the gallery)|
I'd seen an item in The Ealing Gazette about the exhibition and was really keen to see the donated Patrick Caulfield print (very good too) -he was a local lad who felt had been wrongly stuck in the Pop art gang.
What I will say about the Gallery is that it's rather small - the newspaper pictures did not give this impression, it does though have the advantage of being in a very central location.
There's a theme around change in the borough and some good stuff from an Anglo-Irish perspective in the South Acton Heritage Exhibition that's showing now- if you're interested in local history and in the area do pop in.
London HomesAs a starting off point for a historic photographic project I've been thinking about places I've lived in Ealing (only four) and before I got my own place in Aspen Close I stayed in Princes Road.
|The Taxi was owned by the home owner too.|
How lucky I was to be able to enjoy staying with two other guys, after the flat in Hessel Road one of the party bought a house about half a mile away and we behaved there nearly as badly as before.
Now it's not easy to buy your own home at this time it was a possibility.
Housing was a big issue identified in the last London Mayoral election but perhaps beyond the scope of the job- I reckon it needs to be addressed by other means than just 'densification' and needs to be raised up the agenda.
