Photo 1: Capacity

Capacity, then and now, dated grunge

Capacity House, 2-6 Rothsay Street, Bermondsey, London SE1

• Vici MacDonald on the Capacity photo: “Capacity House, in this wonky, once-modern lettering, struck me as an odd and melancholy name. Crammed down a narrow side street near Tower Bridge, in 2002 this had been a mailing house for over 30 years. Ten years on it was hemmed in by a streetlight and new apartments, and awaiting redevelopment as flats and offices.”
