Worker Series #3 – Painters and Plasterers Westminster

I liked the Chaplin-esque pose and pants of the painter pictured here.

The rather Dr Suess looking trees and the stabs of primary colours also lend a little comedy to this very straight and serious (but lovely) part of London.

Dean Trench St sits just off Smith Square – home to the glorious and lop-sided St Johns Church, which painters also decorate by sitting on the steps.

The bike against the iron railings is a very romantic image of Westminster, but there are reminders of harder times.

One or two houses still clearly show signs painted on their walls toward air raid shelters below the street.

I worked in the opposite corner of this beautiful Square and it always seemed like a treat to arrive there each day but the commute was hard work.
