The Tower of Babel – Shop of the Day 153

Willesden, got to be one of the best areas for shop frontage.  Take this beauty for example. Sticking with Hardware stores.  I wonder how long some of these shops will be around having just read this on wikipedia: In 2015, The Telegraph listed Willesden Green as one of their new middle-class areas of London. House prices around the station, and surrounding areas, have “outpaced the oligarch and banker hotspots of Chelsea, Westminster, and even Knightsbridge.” The Guardian mentioned Willesden Green’s fast gentrification, as well as that of nearby Queen’s Park and Kensal Green, as sending a “ripple through the borough.”
