Thamesmead Housing Estate, London, UK

Thamesmead Housing Estate south east London.
This was part of our southeast
 London hood in the years 2004-2007. These Photos are from 2005.
Kubrick filmed scenes from clockwork orange down by the water and visiting here it's understood why.
This was meant to be a town of the future, maybe it still is.A dystopian future perhaps more widely viewed were zombies to be added for indulgence.

The postmen walk in pairs with big fierce dogs with lock tight jaws.
An interesting BBC Article can be found here.
These Photos are circa 2006 some more present day images can be found here at love london council housing.
I happen to love these structures in a weird way. monoliths of the 1960's.
