I love this building!

The magnificent Hoover Building on the A40 in Perivale, West London.



It always reminds me of the Emerald City in 'The Wizard of OZ'!

Would you say I got the vertical crop right? I wanted to roughly divide it into thirds.

I haven't checked, vertical seems ok but it looks slightly off on the horizontal. Might just be the pic, but to me it looks as though it's sloping to the right slightly.

Now I look at it and scroll so a horizontal lines up with the edge of the screen - I think you're right!

If you do stop, make sure you have your 7-14mm with you!

There was a similar building on the A4 - the 'Goodyear Building'. It was going to be listed, but before it could be, the owners had it demolished virtually overnight!
