Haringey heads

There's a possibility of a photo exhibition in a venue on Haringey, the manager asked me to send them a selection of photos. The easiest way to do this was to park them here and email them the link.

This is a small selection of the hundred-odd photos I've taken of those ornamental heads you see in older building around the borough - usually above the doorway. While I still occasionally find some I haven't photographed, some photos date back to 2004. There are plenty more where that came from!

Update - the dates are confirmed - 25 March-April 8, possibly extended (check via The venue is now confirmed as Cafe Lemon, 28 Green Lanes, Haringey, London N4 1LG (Tube: Manor House, Overground: Harringay Green Lanes, First Capital Great Western: Harringay, to Stevenage or Finsbury Park, bus: 29. 141, 341.
