Kensal Rise to Crouch Hill - via Barking

As it was a beautiful midsummer morning, after changing trains (6:57), I stayed on to the end of the line (always wanted to do that!), photographing (through a dirty window, often into the sunlight) at each station. As the route was new to me, and there were announcements, I wrote down the names of the stations:
Gospel Oak
Upper Holloway
Crouch Hill
Harringay Green Lanes
South Tottenham
Blackhorse Road
Walthamstow Queen's Road
Leyton Midland Road
Leytonstone High Road
Wanstead Park
Woodgrange Park
-- and back.
While transcribing the names, I fell into my own trap - starting reading each page from the top. It's not written starting from the top of each page - for the line to be continuous, it goes from side to side down the right-hand page, then at the outer edge it continues onto the bottom of the left-hand page, and then it travels up the left-hand page to continue onto the top of the right-hand page. (Easy when you know how... and obvious when you know where to look.)

Crouch Hill to Kensal Rise

The booklet is my contribution to the Sketchbook Project, based in Brooklyn, USA. The theme is "this is not a sketchbook" (it's a time machine!).

Bus 6, Kensal Rise to Regent Street

Camera in fixed position (upstairs), snapping at each bus stop. Sunday morning.
