Photo 14: Formerly

Formerly, then and now, dated grunge

Above 67 Redchurch Street, Shoreditch, London E1

• Vici MacDonald on the Formerly photo: “Back in 2006, Redchurch Street had already up and come, its cluster of edgy art galleries girdled with exclusive restaurants and clubs. These days even the galleries are being priced out, as high-end fashion moves relentlessly in; but the sign reading simply ‘Formerly’ clings forlornly on, now overshadowed by a satellite dish.”
