Ten years ago today I created the 293rd post for Greenford 365. To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.

This is the Greenford entrance to Charles Holden’s Modernist station, that straddles the Piccadilly Line, on the boundary between the London boroughs of Ealing and Brent. Opened in 1931, its striking, pared down design shows the influence of the Ancient Egyptian architecture discovered by archaeologists earlier that century, strong horizontal lines and plain pierced windows and doorways. Now Grade II listed, it is an interesting mix of old and new. The 21st century requires CCTV and ticket barriers for safety and economy on this unmanned side of the station but the original signs ave been retained.
