I remember when all this was bike stands
This is the side of the Bhs store, facing Walthamstow's Town Square. Just a few metres away there used to be five bike stands, installed by cowboy builders working for the Council. Because they lacked proper foundations they one by one came loose and then vanished. Naturally no-one at the Council was remotely concerned by these vanishing stands, least of all the three High Street councillors. They have never been replaced.
This wall used to be blank but now the space has been used to adverise car parking.
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.
