A bit like Ilford. Today Ilford is third world and Romford is going that way. I think they call it progress!

A familiar tale. Wembley used to be considered 'slightly posh' too. It was outside the North Circular. It was suburban Middlesex and it was a bit leafy.

I was happy to see Portobello (Top End) has not changed too much in the past 30 years.I used to have a stall under the flyover (right where flyfronteds' avatar was photographed i believe) in the early 80's.Still has the Portuguese cafe's which do great cakes and pastries,the odd piss head and the Chip shop.There is no longer a riot van permanently parked on the corner of All Saints now though,and the Rastas seem to have dissapeared.

p.s.

John (Brideshead / Mr Knightley) emailed to say he is still around, reading the thread, etc. but still having posting problems.

He has tried to PM the moderators, but isn't even sure whether the PM function is working.

Fella on the left. Pull his high water trou down so as they break at his shoes, and that look is as good today, as it was 50 years ago.

So you are a Jane Austen character now(thinking back to my A level English) ?

Before that you were an Evelyn Waugh character.

This thread is usually more 'Eastenders' than 'Downton Abbey' biggrin.gif
