‘Time Travel’ – Kilburn

Emerging from the faded grandeur of the Bakerloo line station (1915) and walking along the High Road. The vast empire of the State, from ballroom to archaic behemoth, now hosting a church whilst marooned like a beached liner in an ever changing city. Further along the main thoroughfare a former branch of Woolworths now emerging like a chrysalis into another utilitarian store that remains the antithesis of the artisan supermarket. A shop selling items in plastic bowls (from soap to loaves of sliced bread) all priced at no more than £2. The street bearing little sign of a 21st century revolution. Old phone boxes, cafes (the odd chain) and an evangelical church trio serenading the shoppers dodging melting snow and ice against a brutalist parade backdrop.
