Carruthers Ten Years On: February 2011

In February 2011, the Carruthers blog reached one thousand posts. The month featured more index posts, more 're-mastering' and YouTube videos of the movie, Duel.

I quite like Baked.

I took the photo for Top Floor whilst stood outside the Courtyard Theatre during the rehearsals for the Behind The Bike Shed festival. You will notice that the blaze seems to have been isolated to one flat and in the wake of Grenfell Tower disaster and the subsequent demonization of firefighters by the Conservative Party who cut their resources this seems very significant. The accompanying joke was meant to refer to the notoriously buoyant and cutthroat London property market. Now it's hard not to think about the previous residents.
