A is for Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock was born in Leytonstone in East London – his family ran a grocer’s shop on Leytonstone High Road. The walls of the local Underground station are adorned with several mosaics depicting both Hitchcock himself and scenes from some of his most famous films. They’re beautifully done, and well worth a look if you’re ever in Leytonstone 🙂



My theme for this year’s April A-Z Challenge is ‘My London A-Z’. I’ve found living in London to be very different from just visiting; in general I live a very ordinary life far removed from the craziness of the city itself, so I thought it might be fun to share my everyday experience with you all in images and words…

      Thank you! So far, so good – one letter down, only 25 to go… 🙂

        I hope you’ve got a fall back for X… I think we should just remove it from the alphabet and be done with it!

          Hmmm, I haven’t actually thought that far ahead yet… I might have to cheat, use artistic licence or something!

            Or a combination of the above… works for me!

    what a great idea for your A to Z challenge. I had no idea about this station. I am going to link my niece to it as she is currently living in the UK and loving finding cheap interesting things to do. Yeah and as to X artistic license all the way ….
