Elephant and Castle: Photo adventures 4

Still roaming around the Elephant and Castle. I've managed to get lost, helped an old lady across the road and got chatting to a market stall owner about Jimi Hendrix and the Incredible String Band. It's all happening down at the Elephant and Castle.

Now you see it, now you probably can't afford it. 

Tracked down Ministry of Sound. As mentioned in a previous post, I worked here for the magazine last time I freelanced over this way. We had editorial meetings in the VIP lounge, whilst the club was being cleaned up from the night before. I Alas the magazine is no more but it's good to see that MOS is still going. 

No longer a roundabout but the mystic silver cube lives on

Elephant and Castle 2017

 I'm based over at Elephant and Castle for a couple of weeks. That's how life rolls as a freelancer. 
The last time I freelanced this way was for Ministry of Sound magazine, before that I caught a few bands playing here. Like a lot London hotspots, it's interesting to see the gentrification process. No idea how the Elephant will live in it's new castle but here's a photo report as follows... 
Please do let me know if you'd like a certain locations checked up on and I'll try my best.
