I have a few older neighbours that fondly talk of kilburn and thoes areas. One went back not long ago for a visit and couldn't belive how much it changed.

Like all these places its only the people thats really changed,well not even " changed "......." replaced " would be a more precise term..

Im pretty sure they still have The Irish Times round that way.....i remember one of the most racist men i ever knew was an Irishman from Neasden,f**k me you should of heard him when they built that Temple there,must of been early 90's....funny f****r he was and a great character 😂

That’s very much my experience of Irish lads around them areas mate, didn’t want to say for fear of insulting anyone but now you have said it you are completely right.

The lads I remember would be in the same clothes Monday to Saturday lunch time.

It was drink, sleep then on site for 7:30 To 4 and repeat......they were stinking by Wednesday.

Some of them were hot bedding and all sorts 🤮

Horrible life
