All Aboard for Kingston School of Art!

These images document the daily train journey to art school of Børre Ludvigsen, an Architcture student in the 1960s.


Waiting for the train at Kingston, on the way back home to Balham.

Børre comments:

Living at the northern end of Endlesham Road in Balham, I would take the train from Wandsworth Common station and change at Clapham Junction on my way to Kingston. Up the Junction, a novel by Nell Dunn, about contemporary life in the industrial slums of Battersea near Clapham Junction, came out in 1963 and appeared as a film in 1968.




The train journey into Kingston or Surbiton is a familiar one for many art students still today – though hopefully they’re not the same trains still!
