Art Deco London
There’s a surprising amount of art deco tucked away in London if you know where to look. I spotted this building, called Shropshire House, in a side-alley off Tottenham Court Road today. I don’t register having seen it before, but I guess the new paint-job has made it stand out.
A few roads behind it is – or rather was – a very cute little art deco garage that still sold petrol until a few months ago, when it closed down. I seem to recall that it features in the film ‘An Education’.
