Building    From 1847 

Camden Roundhouse

Built to service trains using Euston, London's first railway terminus. It became obsolete by 1855 when locomotives outgrew its turntable. It then became a warehouse for Gilbey's Gin. In the 1960s the left-wing playwright, Arnold Wesker, promoted its conversion into Centre 42, a cutting-edge arts venue. It's had a chequered life since then but remains, 2015, a performing arts venue.
