Heddon Street, W1 - "It's surprising to discover that the disturbing "space invader" cover for David Bowie's 1972 album, "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars", was photographed in such an ordinary backstreet.  K West.....furriers, are still present and correct, but the phone box at the north end of the street (featured on the back cover) has been replaced by a more recent model.  However, the graffiti on the wall behind bears testimony to its status as third only to the Tardis and Clark Kent's changing room in Space Age phone-booth mythology." - Time Out magazine (18-24 October 1984)
