The former jazz club being renovated in West Hampstead has gained a sign and presumably some interior walls since I photographed it last March. At first I didn't pay attention to all that newspaper covering the windows. It's fairly common practice for businesses being renovated to cover up this way while the work is being done.
But then I took a closer look and realized the "newspaper" actually consists of pages from old '70s magazines -- teenybopper fan mags, from the looks of things.
There's some fashion advice about colorful underwear...
... and a comic strip from the folks who made "Bionic" a word.
Beauty tips from Marie Osmond? A "personal letter" from David Cassidy? What more could we want?
I got such a kick out of all this that I stood in front of the shop reading until Olga got really impatient and began pulling me along the sidewalk. I'm going to have to go back without her and take a closer look!
