8th June 2018 : BACK TO BLOG OVERVIEW
I hadn't been to Kings Cross since my visit as part of the Monopoly project, but today I was here to explore the area a little more.
My friend Kevin and I started at Kings Cross and worked our way through Pancras Square (where I shot the first three images, along with the stained stonework and the water hydrants). Then over the bridge and into Granary Square.
Outside the House of Illustration was an old Saab 900 decorated with some great art including the London image (slightly edited) at the end of this post and the guitar and record player.
From there we worked our way east along the Regent's Canal Towpath all the way to the Kingsland Road. I have included an image of someone enjoying their lunch by the waters edge and a barge entering the Islington Canal Tunnel. We walked over the top of the tunnel through housing estates and the middle of Islington until the canal popped out 800 m later, along with the same barge we had seen going into the tunnel.
At the end of our walk, on the way down the Kingsland Road I was pleased to see the old St. Leonards Hospital site. I lived in the hospital briefly in the the early 1980's (while working at Bart's Hospital, where I ran the Doctors' bar. . . yes, they did have a bar within the hospital!).
I hope you like the images, if you have any comments please let me know.
