Barry Cheese wished to record the streets of Notting Hill before a dramatic change came in the shape of the Westway, and here took his camera to record these valuable scenes of London streets in what was then one of London’s poorest areas but is now one of the richest in Europe. Includes shots of several pubs, street signs, back alleys, shops, homes and factories.
