Helvetica Man gets his groove back

Today I  went for a stroll around my old home town of Croydon and took some photos. I hadn't realised how much signage remained from the 60s/70s rebuild, but it was lovely to see that Croydon's version of 'helvetica man' has flares. I hope they never get round to cleansing the town of all its old signage, it's this sort of thing that gives a place character.


  1. Love the photos. I lived in Croydon 1975-79 (I married a man of the Croydon class) But didn't appreciate the architecture at the time. I can't believe they've knocked Taberner House down. Now live in Hulme, Manchester which got knocked down twice.
