I love yr book and website. I have never commented on one or a blog before as I dont know how to. My son got this space for me.
I am trying to get info on my favourite old cafe, The Blue Sky, by corner of Westbourne Grove and Chepstow Rd,London W2, between PAddington and Portobello Rd, which was my home from home from 1974-80.I lived in various squats and flats nearby and hung out with various groovy people in those days....
It closed down a few years ago. I wld love to get photos and the name/address of the lovely Irish waitress and Italian boss....
I have tried the Archives at Westminster City Library but no luck.
I am doing a Ceramics degree as a v mature student and want to do an installation recreating a table at it, the light coming thru steamy bright plateglass windows, the smells, food, china,plastic menus, etc etc.
I have assembled a load of stuff (tables, chairs etc),but they are not perfect. I wonder if you have any ideas on where I cld borrow/hire perfect stuff in one fell swoop, for a few days in early Jan 07?
Most of all I want to get hold of a tape/CD of cafe background noises. Any ideas?
Many thanks, Emma
