Round About the Box

Next Saturday I shall be one of four people telling alternative histories and stories about the Faraday Memorial at the Elephant and Castle with artist Mark Wayman. You may know the thing I’m talking about, the Grade II listed 1959 silver box that houses a London Underground substation.
I was sent a flyer about it by email today.

M&S Walworth Road Centenary Event

Although I am deeply disappointed that manager Malcolm will not be donning a winged collar and dressing as the first manager of the Walworth Road branch of Marks and Spencer did a hundred years ago, and equally disappointed that the rest of the staff will not be wearing 1913 uniforms either, I have been assured that there will be photographs and artefacts so that by the end of Saturday we shall be able to picture more clearly how the shop and its staff would have looked.

Not so long ago, the shopfront had a makeover to come in line with other branches up and down the country.
