Lucozade bottles, Greenford substation, Oldfield Lane North

The gates to electricity substations in Greenford aren’t usually adorned with plastic bottles but someone with a strong sense of symmetry felt the need to embellish these. This is a utilitarian but attractive building, probably from dating the 1930′s but it could be postwar. The long, narrow windows have been covered with boards but even they have weathered gracefully.
