mean011. On a demolition site, Coxy and Mark play in the dust of a falling building. A fair few blocks have been demolished in the Whiston Street E2 and Dunston Street E8 areas.
mean011n. Scriven Court is still standing: this is taken from the corner of Haggerston Road and Scriven Street, E8, and could, with rather a lot of imagination and wishful thinking (external access changed to internal?), be the spot, as it fits the continuity. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 18-08-2017)
mean012. The two mates climb through a fence onto the canal towpath. Looking onto Dunston Road E8 at the junction with Clarissa Street in Haggerston. The area has since been redeveloped.
mean012n. Time has widened the gap. Actually this is the wrong gap: I shall return to repair (my error not the railing). SJ (Modern Photo Added: 18-08-2017)
mean013. Mark and Coxy mess about as they walk home. The towpath alongside the Grand Union Canal and Dunston Road.
mean013n. Looking west towards the Overground Bridge between Hoxton and Haggerston stations. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 18-08-2017)
mean014. When the family washing machine breaks down, Colin is trusted to look after the washing in the estate’s launderette. Looking out onto Fellows Court on the Kingsland Estate.
mean014n. Taken from the Santa Launderette, closed up at the time I visited. SJ (Modern Photo Added: 18-08-2017)
