Relive NW1's glory days at new David Bailey exhibition in Soho

Knackered Victorian terraces, tumbledown cinemas and crumbling railway arches

Back before the craft beer and the bottomless brunches and the tottering pop stars moved in, NW1 was pretty grim – all knackered Victorian terraces and tumbledown cinemas and crumbling railway arches. And 34 years ago, David Bailey was there to capture it all. To celebrate a 1,000-run reprint of his long-sold-out book NW1 – which he filled with moody, gritty black and white pics – Soho gallery HENI is exhibiting the works until the end of January.
