In just a few months time 113-119 Charing Cross Road will be demolished. To Londoners these buildings are better known as the former home of Foyles Bookshop. As a way of recording this much-loved building I have created a large scale illustrated model of the structure.

The model will feature at the centre of a mini-site celebrating the heritage and narratives of the building. The project seeks to gather a range of new materials from written accounts and interview recordings with individuals who worked in or used the building, to specially commissioned articles about the history of Charing Cross Road and Soho’s modern day evolution.

I am currently seeking to collect memories of those who worked in or used this building. If you would like to share a memory of the building please contact me at seb.harding1@googlemail.com.
