I recognise the two shots above. I walk past this building (the Institute of Education) on my way to the British Museum once a week. There is coffee shop on the ground floor. There is no phone box in that spot in the real world. The building is a great piece of Brutalist architecture. The outer staircase, used in the Little Drummer Girl’w final episode, is my favourite aspect.
I love this shot from Tin Star. There was no real need in the story line for this scene but the producers put it in anyway. Local art and phone boxes create powerful images.
It seems odd that in some deep basement in a fictional Gotham there is a real UK phone box lurking in the background:
Chorley Council adopted an old phone box and transformed it into a defibrillator. Click here for more.
On the plane over to Australia I watched ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel‘ again. One of my favourite films:
I found this with other stuff I had put away in the cupboard at my mother’s house in Australia. I don’t know when I picked it up, maybe my travels in Eastern Europe c.1998. I only speak English so I don’t know if it’s funny or not…
I also found a large stash of club and band flyers from the late 1980s and early 1990s. I’m setting up a blog to share those as well. This can be found at –
