Smithfield crushed

Smithfield House is no more.  On the edge of the market, it was used by squatters for a couple of years and briefly as headquarters for the London Architecture Festival.  It is now the site for one of the entrances to Farringdon Crossrail station. This was taken on the walk led by typographer Phil Baines who pointed out how bad it was; poorly-spaced letters, a badly-cut ‘M’, an out of turn ‘S’ and lots more.  Just behind this was a mysterious tripe dresser, also mashed into the bowels of Crossrail.
