  1. Scattered Satellites - Purdom, Abercrombie, Hilberseimer, MARS - Links

    Click the thumbnail of the 1943 ‘The County of London Plan’. Lovely, lovely map of London’s rough areas, as queried earlier (thanks Blech).

    I like the colours of the County Of London Plan, 1943.

  3. Utopia London

    Awesome-looking film, about post-war modernist housing development in London. There’s a screening near Farringdon on 14 Dec. Also, where’s the map in the ‘About’ section from? (via City of Sound)

    @danhon That's one Julia Stiles each! Neither of us will have to get rid of the other after all!

    Sometimes, Transport For London's inability to provide transport for London is an astounding achievement. Evening ruined.

    Listened to INXS's 'Kick' for the first time in 20 years. Waves of nostalgia failed to wash over me. No need to repeat for another 20.
