Them wer't days: Flask Walk 1973
It is with much joy that I announce edition 15 of the Hampstead Village Voice is winging (Ed. Don't you mean whinging?) its way to the printers and, all being well, will be with your local newsagent no later than the 1st of March 2012. Hoorah!
Once in your grubby little paws, it'll feature a punishing critique of the ruthless corporate invasion of Hampstead High Street, combined with a rather endearing trip down memory lane when Fowlers in Flask Walk (above) sold single cigarettes to children and no one seemed to mind. Ay, them wer't days!
What else? Oh yes, Professor P. Dant has a most splendid rant at those blasted 1 mile deep basements; the High Street Spy has a go at the Post Office for up-selling insurance to old ladies; the Ham&High gets a hammering (Ed. don't you mean Ham&Highering?); La Gaffe celebrates 50 years with Stevie Wonder and Huggy Bear; there's an exposé on cheap and nasty letting agencies attempting to rent out Hampstead flats in a rather unethical manner and a whole lot of other good shit.
Also, exclusive Hampstead photos of Thierry Henry, Jürgen Klinsmann, David Soul, Martin Bell, Patrick Veiera and Robert Pires. Cor blimey guvnor!
