Quite a few streets in that area vanished under the new construction of the Westway / A40(M) at the time, including the one my Great Gran lived in for a while. No Minis in these pics but they show just how run down parts of West London were in the '60s and 'early '70s...

If any of these still exist they're probably quite gentrified by now, with a price tag to match.

If the rumours are to be believed there are quite a few corpses under there too :lol:
