Remember a few weeks ago when we visited Preston? Although it was clearly the wrong part of Preston, I did find one interesting building to snap.


  1. Hello Andrew:
    Such a pity about the surrounding buildings, if they can be called that. What exactly, we wonder, is Hair Afrique when it comes to styles?

  2. I like it. I can imagine living in those flats above the shops and hearing all the goings on from downstairs.
    I did once live in a flat above a gift shop on Semaphore road. I'd sit on the tiny balcony and watch the beach and on the horizon I'd see ships coming and going from Port Adelaide.

  3. J&L, it is not our finest part of town, but I have to remember people live there in their homes and these are their local shops. There, I did it. Oh the squalor though. I imagine Hair Afrique specialises in braiding and de-frizzing.

    That sounds really nice River. I used to think it would be nice to buy a building with a couple of shops downtstairs to rent out and live in the upstairs accommodation. We looked at a flat to buy above a shop once, but it was a fish and chip shop.
