“Genesis”, Camden: biblical beginnings

“Genesis Integrated Systems” burglar alarm, Camden • This is possibly named after the horrible band (it could be an above shot of one of Peter Gabriel’s early hairstyles), but I shall assume it’s a reference to the first book of the Bible and the origin of the world. All that plus integrated systems too! While researching the Genesis singer’s “reverse mohawk” (below), I came across brilliant medieval illustration showing the first day as essentially the view from an aeroplane window (also below). Or perhaps a giant celestial laundromat. • Spotted: Southampton Place, Camden, London, WC1, England, 2011 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Holborn and St Pancras


Above: Peter Gabriel’s early Genesis “reverse mohawk” barnet, and a laundromat-style first day of creation as depicted in the Nuremburg Chronicle of 1493
