The Tower of Babel – Shop of the Day 155
TV fame today and the most renound fried chicken shop in the land?? @Channel4 #friedchickenshop in Clapham. At the start of this whole project I derided the shops lower down on The Tower. Especially the Chicken Shops. Having now really had a chance to think about the whole hierarchy of The Tower and what it means to own and run a shop, I have changed my position considerably and I take my hat off to all the shop owners on The Tower. I boggle at the competition that the chicken shop and pound shop owners have, how they are able to make a profit with such low prices. In one way The Tower could be seen as a real celebration of survival, of entrepreneurial spirit. Although on the other hand it could be seen as the capitalist beast described in Sir Thomas Moore’s Utopia…..
