I'm sure there used to be. Some chiropodist or something had it. Am I going mad?
oh never mind.
Great thread though!

iain sinclair eat yer heart out
Never ceases to freak me out on drunken stumbles home from the Lexington
that's even more horrific than the first one. There's obviously a market for this...I might set up a website (www.bigspinesonwalls.com)
Anyway much as I don't want to know the answer, why did you start this thread Theo?
Habit has killed my critical faculties :(
and it'll be overflowing with giant human spines
and had since disappeared. But clearly it's just that I hadn't been down that bit of Old Street in AGES and forgotten that's where I saw it.
Then I immediately wished that I spent less time on the internet.
I need to go home.
