'Quality Trim' in Kensal Rise
A real gem of a sign - and building - in the perhaps unlikely setting of a back street near Kensal Rise station. There aren't many signs with an '01' phone number still around. I saw this one some years ago when taking my daughter to a party - and when I popped back last weekend (this isn't my normal stamping ground) I was delighted to see it still there, and not defaced or painted over.
The Mews Coachworks is on Mortimer Road, NW10 - and as far as I can tell is still providing trim to classic cars. These small yards in the middle of residential streets were once common, and quite a few remain.
This one in particular puts me in mind of Steptoe and Son - a sit com staple of my childhood. The rag and bone men were based not all that far away - and you could imagine their old nag Hercules having his stables in just such a spot.
