Been there, done that

Ten years ago, palm trees were almost unknown in London, now they are everywhere. Search me...

Adrian Avenue, Staples Corner. Once there was a little row of shops here, including a car custom shop called Little Wolf. One day, probably with the arrival of the new M1 ramp, it disappeared. We now have one of the grubbiest and dodgiest little industrial areas on the planet, and from my intuition more petty crime than actual business taking place. And mind the junkyard just out of sight to the right. Straight out of an episode of Minder... As all the old timers round here say, 'used to be such a nice area...', and as I lived here then I can only agree.
