Vintage Building

We spent this weekend in London for a christening and the friends we were visiting live on the infamous Rowley Way. It's Grade II listed but rather than  a building from the Georgian times or a unique post office building from the 1900's it's a whole street built in the 1960's.

As you can see it's more then just a street. From the main walk way are flats staggered up and backwards. The majority are still council owned and behind the right side is a maze of play areas and gardens;

It's a crazy place that can seem both depressing and hopeful depending on the time of day. The thing I love most about it is how some people really love their homes and although they are all totally uniform in build, tenants have added their own little touches of personality;

If you're ever in the neighbourhood (NW3) i really recommend checking it out as it's one of a kind.
