Today’s photo is “The Interchange”.

The Interchange was once a link between London’s railways and canals.  The building straddled the canal at Camden Town, with railway tracks and platforms on one side, and trap-doors giving access to the barges beneath.  As canal transport declined, The Interchange was used for transfers between rail and road, then as a storage warehouse, and now as offices.  As a home for media companies, it’s still well-named, even if it’s an interchange for information, not timber and coal.
