Spitfire Works and Edgware Road

Today we have stopped by another famous London building yet unknown to us, the Spitfire Works. I won't even bother writing about its history as it speaks for itself:

The building was restored to its current state by architect Terry Farrell, whose offices are now housed inside.

A fantastic Art Deco gem - one side, unfortunately, obscured by scaffolding.

Not only wings on its walls, you can also see easily recognisable Spitfire silhouettes by its roof:

And also I'm going to use this opportunity to show a couple of pics from the other side of Edgware road:
