    Regards to Broadway
    I'm on the one hand shamed by the excellent work of Diamond Geezer in documenting in generous detail various parts of his home city, London. On the other hand it's an inspiration to me to get working again on some more of this kind of thing here, after a bit of a lapse.

    Currently DG is in Hackney and today's post on Broadway Market describes a once-struggling retail outlet now on the up again, and a community bedevilled by yuppie redevelopments fighting back.

    It's a bit of London I know a little, having been on placement there in 1999 and it's heartening to know that there's still some rebel spirit in the air there. Could do with more of that in Liverpool city centre - difference being, hardly anyone lived there before.
