‘Time Travel’ – Horn Lane, Acton

An ascent north (west). The former TA centre, now flats. Old shops, now flats. ‘Dental Implants’. The trend now extracted by contractors. Old road signs, still hanging in the face of modernity. Hints of rust amidst the distinctive vintage font and red postcode. A pub (archetypal ‘old boozer’) now standing, boldly, as a Polish health store. Further left, a freight train awaits the signal to head for the West Country. The locomotive standing silently in the cold gloom, three forward lights giving it the appearance of a bathescope scanning the ocean bed.
