from its premiere at the Women’s Institute meeting at Brioche, a favoured café in
the heart of West Hampstead, I post this slideshow which concentrates on what
had been described by Pevsner as the ‘middle middle class’ houses of
West Hampstead (we will have to compile another version with the middle-class
houses, which have a tendency towards the upper, with their rather more
grandiose frontages.)

soundtrack is local too. ‘Broadhurst Garden Blues’ was recorded by George
Chisholm and his swing group in 1937 at the Decca Studios in the old West
Hampstead Town Hall.
