Another Urban Wander around Hammersmith

Despite the gloomy weather today, I was determined to get out of the office for some air, and a quick wander around. I'm running out of new places to explore within easy walking distance of the office but did manage to fund somewhere new today, although parts of the wander crossed previous drifts.

The first photo is of a ghost sign for  

PRINCESS CHRISTIAN HAMMERSMITH DAY NURSERY

I must have walked past this before but had never noticed it before. Maybe it's been recently uncovered?

The next few photos are all of the arches beneath the Hammersmith and City underground line on the stretch between Goldhawk Road and Hammersmith tube stations. Presumably when first built, these arches were left open, but now the majority of them seem to be occupied by various trades.

As my wander drew to a close I cam across two mews that were new to me. Again unfortunately the poor weather does not show these mews in their best light.

Stay tuned for more urban wandering, with hopefully some brighter weather.
