Swan & Edgar
Swan & Edgar
Picadilly Circus is ringed by different buildings, perhaps the most famous of which is the former "Swan & Edgar" building. Whenever you needed a place to meet your date in London for an evening out, this was the classic spot - at the Swan & Edgar entrance. Before they moved the Eros statue and re-organized the circus for better traffic flow, this is where Eros was pointing his bow and arrow. Found on the web: When William Edgar first came to London he had a haberdashery stall at St. James's Market in Haymarket. With no lodgings to go to, used to sleep under it at night. He met Mr. Swan, a draper about whom very little is known, and together they opened a shop in the Ludgate area of the City. The business did tolerably well and in 1812-1814 the friends were able to move out of the City to 20 Piccadilly. Following the construction of Regent Street, they moved into number 49, which had been the premises of the Western Mail and Coach Offices and also of the Bull &amp Mouth inn, (the licence for which they retained until shortly before it closed in the late 20th century). Mr. Swan died in 1821, but Edgar retained his name, even after the refurbishment and the erection of the splendid new shop-front in 1841. Mr. Edgar flourished and was a familiar sight riding his horse to work from his home at Kingston Hill. He was always asked to be on hand to personally help when Queen Victoria's family visited the store. Expansion meant that, by 1848, the business had come to occupy the premises at numbers 45-51 on the Quadrant and the entire corner of Piccadilly circus. The shop-front was one of the West End businesses targeted by the Suffragettes in their window-breaking spree on November 21, 1911. The premises were rebuilt and integrated in 1910-20 to a design by Sir Reginald Blomfield and became a popular place of assignation for Londoners for many generations. The store was hit by the last Zeppelin raid on London in 1917. The business was taken over by the Drapery Trust in 1927 and later by the Debenham Group, which closed it in 1982 because, they claimed, it would cost too much to modernize it. and until recently it was the flagship UK store for Tower Records. It was bought by Richard Branson of the Virgin Group in 2003 and it became a Virgin Records Megastore.
Abandoned
Abandoned
Abandoned Dreams left behind in their own nightmare. Plastic drapery dances among the stale air. Dust clings to floorboards where shadows are shy; where light can't reach the glimpse of an eye. Even portraits rest on bent nails in a stare. Secrets spill out of the walls through their wear. Screams once heard in the night to declare, a piece of mind to hold onto and a place to reside Dreams left behind. The air is cold and damp with prayer Eating away at supports not readily prepared. Stairs bow from the weight of goodbyes, waiting for the rush of a longing reply. Broken windows unashamed by the passing of errors. Dreams left behind. Poem by: KandiKarma
