Joe Blogs laments Goodbye Tottenham Court Road
Smart Boy About Town takes his lead from Paul Weller and is going underground…
Hi, it's me, Joe.
Now don't get me wrong: I'm never one to stand in the way of progress. I'm a kid of the New Millenium and I'm all for evolution and improvements. But, the brilliant thing about living in London is that there's so much great OLD stuff around; I love all those ancient buildings and history and stuff.
So, I was a bit upset when I heard that Tottenham Court Road Station was going to be closed – you know, for some big fancy ticket hall and CrossRail and blah, blah, blah – and they are going to lose the fantastic mosaics by Sir Eduardo Paolozzi! I love them – they're really POP ART, plus it means I know when I'm at Tottenham Court Road. Don't worry: the powers that be promise the mosaics will be safely preserved, and reinstated in a new home TBC. In the meantime, here's some pix to remind you!
Joe's wardrobe: Long-sleeved T-Shirt by No Added Sugar; T-Shirt by Kids Case; Jeans by French Connection; Shoes by Rachel Riley.
