This is my homage to the great Mr Wilson, although my modus operandi was slightly different: I used digital, not film; mine took hours, not months and I used Photoshop and it’s still not a patch on the real thing! It was a very interesting observational exercise, from which I learned: The street signs are quite sloppily painted (the raggedy edges are not the result of a botched Photoshop moment, they are actually like that); some signs say ‘Borough of Chelsea’ whilst others say ‘Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’ and the older signs have a slightly different font.
