I keep stopping to look at the photo of 'Trellick Tower' in my hallway that husband took when we lived in London. It really is an amazing piece of architecture. We had a perfect view of it out of our flat and it became a real symbol to us of living in London. I must admit though I was quite afraid of the tower and its status as a council house building. I would feel on edge everytime we walked past it to get to Portobello Rd, but it never failed to leave me with a sense of awe for the Brutalist architecture. The building was designed by Erno Goldfinger (love that name!) and completion of the building occurred in 1972. Trellick Tower is located in North Kensignton.

The top three photos were taken out of our flat window. Harrow Road is in the second shot.
