Favorite Camden Town Quotes

1. "Last night, Good Friday night, at the bottom of the escalator at King's X tube, a weasel-faced man in uniform was sweeping up rubbish with a wide broom, drink cartons, cigarette packets with all the dust and filthy scraps of the day which he pushed towards an elegant long black glove that was lying there. I expected him to pick it up as I would have – I thought of picking it up, but was too late. He smothered it in a wide sweep. It seemed to me extraordinary and shocking that he had no feeling for it. Several images went through my mind, a symbolic hand, a dead blackbird, an ornamental bookmark fallen from a lectern Bible – any once-precious relic being tumbled in the dirt. As I went up the escalator I remembered the Tatterdemallion whom I haven't seen for months and thought of his body, if he were to die in the tube, being tumbled about with the rest of the thrown-away rubbish." David Thomson, In Camden Town"

Camden Town, King's Cross St Pancras, Green Park e così Embankment eSt Jame's Park; lungo il Thames nel parco del Greenwich observatory e poi ancora a Bank: Londrasembrava diventare triste e vuota.Anche London Bridge, Knights Bridge o Millennium Bridge, sembravano essersi spogliati delloro fascino, come accadde per Backingham Palace e Westminster Palace. Era davvero giunta l'oradi lasciare l'Inghilterra."
