Good god, 'functional' commercial architecture really isn't what it was, is it? :evil:

Those aeroplanes shown by Peter (ist thread, previous page 46)........ Bristol Freighters. The New Zealand RAF had them that we ofted used as a means of transport around the Far East as squaddies out there in the mid to late 60's or so. I wouldn't take my dog in one. They were so rough you could see the clamshell doors flexing in flight. In fact everyone called them Bristol FRIGHTENERS. When they went for the chop we used something just as rough from the Bristol stable.... the Bristol Belvedere. It was like sitting on a Kango hammer

This appears to be The Western Avenue/Dukes Road site today?
(The buildings were located on the junction of Dukes Road, Western Avenue, Acton).
I know this place, where Screwfix now is, there used to be a Machine Mart if I remember rightly. Occasionally popped-in there on the way from and to HEX Acton depot. Funny, I'd never thought there would have been this grand Hooper building previously.
If only I knew the power of the Dark Side...I wouldn't have made contact with an Innocenti :mrgreen:

It seems to be a very British thing doesn't it? Replace a nice old building with a hastily and cheaply constructed World Of Shite superstore.
