some time ago i dedicated a post to one of my favourite daily sights: the penny door in city road. tonite when i was waiting for my bus my eyes couldn't help but scan the oliver house for some form of life. a little boy peered out from an orange-lit room and there were a few plants thriving in the windows. when my eyes fell once more upon the pennies there was a man with a dog, looking like he was going to either knock or go in. i never got a reply to the email i sent so i saw this as my chance to see what oliver house was all about.
p.s. 22 jan, i got an email from mister penny!! hello! its very nice to recieve your email, and i'm very happy it makes you smile every day! the building was business in the past but over the past 5 years at least has been a residential squat and the pennydoor was a project towards the outside world which is very different to the inside of the building... well my name is myrto, and I put actually made the door as it is with the help of many housemates. The thing is that I have mooved to athens so i cant open the door for you. What you can do is to ring the doorbell and say you got in contact with me and ask if it is possible to have a look around ... thanx for the nice words and blog! myrto
