Golborne Road W10Golborne Road, London W10 is situated at the northern end of Portobello Road and has a diverse and eclectic mix of shops. On Fridays and Saturdays, the street transforms itself into a vibrant, colourful and ever-changing market scene. I have been familiar with the Golborne Road for more than 25 years. This documentary project started to evolve when a number of shops closed or rapidly reinvented themselves under new ownership. Political and social changes, such as chain-store takeovers and the planned 'gentrification' of the area, are already seeing the permanent dispersal and subsequent probable extinction of this long established and close-knit community.
