The Fake Houses of Leinster Gardens
On the rare occasions that I make it to London’s glitzy West London area, I like to show people these Fake Houses. Back in the days of underground steam engines, some parts of the track needed to be exposed for engines to let off steam. The residents of this fancy neighbourhood objected to a big pit nasty-ing up the terrace, so they built two fake houses. They’re only five feet thick, all the windows are blacked out, and there are no letterboxes in the concrete doors.
