Meanderings of an Londoneering Castaway.
A series of Charles' occasional observations. He does go on a bit... Shuffling soon to a street near you.
Hello everyone, welcome back to the new year in London's architectural history. Sorry, but I'm still rather off line these days, but I do feel that when I make a comeback, then I will be as dedicated as before.
So this year: Royal Wedding in London. The Shard skyscraper is going up and up and looks fabulous. But the other day I made a trip to the TCR area, and it was disgusting what they have done there and in many other places to destroy London just for this stupid Crossrail Project. Ok, TCR corner was never the most beautiful, but those buildings above the fish & chip shop had brilliant potential, and the Astoria was a powerful gig. All now gone, and for what?
So, I was so sickened by the TCR building site. So far, the mosaics are still on the platforms. But all this mess. You know they will not stop at this, the next population increase will give them an excuse to make another profitteering scheme, and destroy another part of London. I hate it.
Oh well, bye for now. Too busy to update my beloved website, now in it's tenth year. Please forgive me, readers. Bye for now.
