An Urban Wander through Kilburn

After finishing my Urban Wander around Hampstead I drifted in the vague direction of Paddington to make my way home. Spotted a couple of ghost signs along the way. The first one is slightly curious in that it appears to perhaps have been recently revealed as the paint flaked away. However the paint above it appears new, so perhaps it has been recently pained but deliberately leaving the old sign visible.

A bit further down the same road, there is almost nothing remaining of this ghost sign - I wonder what it once said.

Having walked around Hampstead for over an hour, and then down to Kilburn, my feet were beginning to ache and I needed to get back to Paddington to catch the train back to the country pile, so hopped on the tube at Kilburn Park. Couldn't resist a quick snap of the station before I went underground though.

As well as the more than impressive outside of the London Underground station, the inside had a great skylight above the escalators.
