Some screen grabs from places I lived and worked in in the UK. More to come.
1I lived in the UK in 1970-71. A few photos here. Ealing. The first place I lived in London. Shared a flat with others and a friend who was at LSE.
2 Cleveland St., W1. We lived in a walkup slum flat on the 3rd floor in this building.
3 The Duke of York, W1. Not far from my Cleveland St flat. A friend and I played a zillion games of fussball here against some Italians, and got pretty good at the game.
4the-old-bailey-building The Old Bailey. I worked as a bricklayer's assistant on an addition to the ancient building, seen on the right.
5 Close-up of Old Bailey addition. I lost my fear of heights for a while working on this job.
6 Hillfield Avenue. Lived in a communal house here for a time, but even using Google Street View I couldn't find it.
7 The Hornsey Motor Company, a motorcycle company for whom I worked, was in these two store fronts, shop out back.
8 Skinny Paul. End of 1st day as a mechanic, Hornsey Motor Company.

10 Fred. Awesome hands-on mechanic from Barbados, learned most of his trade on boat engines. Here working on a Triton. (Triumph engine, Norton featherbed frame). We nornally started our day by passing around a large "fatty."
