Here’s the Ham&High’s latest foray into its 1990 archives with history flashbacks charting the brilliant, awful and downright bizarre...
This week 30 years ago Camden faced a £3 million fine to the London Residuary Body for failing to turn the Roundhouse into an arts centre.
The discovery of the penalty clause came in the same week as police received complaints about a 12-hour warehouse party which began in the Victorian locomotive shed and which revellers paid £20 a head to attend.
Elsewhere an extension more than three times the permitted size to a Hampstead home was the subject of an enforcement notice by Camden Council.
"I now have a balcony which could hold 60 people just four feet from my room," a neighbour said.
