Suburban Dreaming

We had a tourist day yesterday – Tate Modern for the unbearable darkness of Miroslaw Balka’s instillation (only intermittently spoilt by screaming kids), a routemaster bus, Covent Garden, and through Soho for tea and cake.

At the London Transport Museum, there was this rather lovely poster for a new exhibition documenting how the growth of the underground facilitated the spread of suburbia, that strange place between city and country where nothing ever changes, nothing ever goes wrong, and where dreams are made, lived  and vanquished.

It looks good.  As a product of suburbia, I’ll have to check it out some time.
