Walthamstow...the new Mattressland?

alan cummings looking rather more fetching than his mattress doubles
it appears that Walthamstow are strong contenders for the Mattressland title....!  the Walthamstow Unofficial Tourist Board created by artist Warpdog have gone global with their very excellent  celebrities that look like mattresses - even my Dad sent me a cutting from the Daily Mail - hilarious!
oh Mickey you are (not) so fine...
Lyndsey you blow my mind...
well...they certainly are chock full of mattresses - but Harlesden claimed the title first - just check out albums here: Mattressland 1 (2008)Mattressland 2 (2010-) and Mattressland 3 (2011 - now). but maybe it's time to hand over the crown or perhaps we should request being twinned with Walthamstow! i am spotting fewer and fewer mattresses up this neck of the woods lately....i think Harlesden is ACTUALLY becoming gentrified...only 25 years after moving here and hearing it would happen!!   in the meantime i think i'll still keep spotting, posting and producing my annual Mattressland calendar...and here's a few recent ones spotted by me and roving reporter Luke...
sent in by Luke - spotted by a mate (no location?!)
