1 August (Part 2) - New York Times features Abbey Wood

It’s not every day that your own house, well the top most peak of the gable end, appears in the New York Times.

Yesterday they ran a rather downbeat piece about how London will go to the dogs following Brexit and Crossrail is in danger of becoming a white elephant.

Their reporter talks quite a lot of rot but his photographer did a fine job.
New York Times
There are six references to Abbey Wood in the article including photo captions. Thamesmead is featured too.

The last time I was able to link myself to the New York Times was when a distant relative, of whom I am not a direct descendant, tried to assassinate the banker J.P. Morgan but shot his personal physician dead instead. The gunman was declared insane and put away never to be seen again.

Probably my friend Philip Read will be able to make something of that. 😉
