Photoblog: Carreras Cigarette Factory

I’d like to pretend that this is original 1930s detailing but actually the original Egyptian features of the Carreras Cigarette Factory in Camden were lost in the 1960s when the building was converted into offices. The details were restored in the 1990s complete with replica cats. Still, it’s a pretty good knock off job. This building is extremely difficult to photograph due to its unfortunate angle and its proximity to a large busy road. Hopefully these shots give a sense of the general idea.
