Part of the Lambeth Borough, Brixton is a multi-cultural community with nearly a quarter of the local populace originating from Africa or the Carribeans. There is a great history behind it as the place was industrialized during the late 19th century, which leaves a lot of interesting buildings from that day and age and from later on, some of which are the Sunlight Laundry, an Art Deco factory building and one of the last remaining windmills in the area – Ashby’s Mill. Suffering from bomb attacks during WWII this area was massively demolished which led to severe problems for housing, though this was eventually over when many immigrants from African-Caribbean origin settled in here, brought over the the MV Empire Windrush, a passenger ship in 1948.
The most notable thing about this area however is the historical fact that in 1880 the local Electric Avenue was the first street in London to be lit by electric lights. This lead to some severe rioting in the area when rioters called electricity “The Invisible Killer”. Even though this is an amusing fact progress still left behind some wonderful Victorian buildings in the area, which are definitely worth seeing.
The area now has a multitude of art galleries, boutiques, cafes and bars. Brixton also has a remarkable farmers market at Station Road. It has been a centre of trade and helped in the growth of Brixton. Interstingly the borough has its own currency, the so-called Brixton Pound which was meant to be an alternative to the British Pound. The Ritzy cinema is a good place to go with its early 20th century design among many of its clubs like The Fridge, Brixton Academy and The Windmill.
Pop star David Bowie was born here in Brixton itself and the place has produced a number of talents across many fields, like two of the members of The Clash – Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, and even Ozzy Osbourne’s wife Sharon among a multitude of musicians, sports players and novelists. Brixton also has a few Churches, most notably the Christ Church on Brixton Road and St. Matthew’s. It also houses the Masjid ibn Taymeeyah or more commonly known as the Brixton Mosque as well, adding to the ethnic and cultural bounty of the region.
