Hackney Wick hoardings

Matchbox cars were produced in the  Lesney building along Eastway until it closed in the 1980’s.  The legendary ‘fridge mountain’ was cleared in 2007 to make way for the Olympic Park.  These signs coincided with the 2012 Games and represented not just the lost industries of Hackney Wick but also the connections of memory and place.
