White City portrait
White City in west London is not the most glamorous or sought-after address, but it plays a huge role in my life as part of the neighbourhood.
The area began life as an exhibition mecca in the early 20th century, and was the venue for the 1908 Olympics. More than a century later, times have changed. Its era as the hub of BBC Television and news has been and gone. But the relatively new Westfield shopping complex has transformed White City.
It’s a place where people live and work. Enjoy this series of snapshots from an urban slice of west London.
