Marqueen Towers, 612-618 Streatham High Road, London SW16

 
This great little building has perhaps been a bit under-appreciated over the years - but it's qualities still shine through.

If this was Notting Hill the Towers might be returned to their former glory and sold off as super-chic apartments (or should I say 'flats'), but on this interesting but not too recherche bit of the A23 the future is less likely to be golden...
