Nelson Mandela, Van Gogh, David Bowie,... been, lived or were born in Brixton!!!

Hello all!!

It is very cold here in SW London. OK, the temperatures are not below zero, but this winter has been mild and just as you think spring is coming, winter decides to come in full force.
So due to cold fingers I have not been taking pictures of my outside surroundings, but have something in my photo albums from before that I'd like to share with you.
A little bit of trivia and a bit of history of Brixton:

Any interesting facts from the area where you live?

Have a lovely rest of the week.

Amazing the titbits of interest in some places.
Yep, the weather has turned a bit like the Arctic here as well! Diane

Hello Red:
Brixton certainly has had and, no doubt, still does have its share of stars and intrigue. We do like the way that these snapshots of information have been displayed, odd ones we think you have shown before. It is a most imaginative and creative installation, a work of art in itself.

Hoping that you are keeping warm in this bitter weather. Take care of yourself!

I love all the cool facts about Brixton! Where I live is not famous for much except that all the locals get together and moon the train once a year--klassy, right? Although Laguna Beach proper is home to many famous artists/actors.
