AC/DC Lead Singer Bon Scott died in London in 1980, following a heavy drinking session at the Music Machine in Camden with friends.







Scott was taken to a rather scruffy looking flat belonging to a friend by the name of Alistar Kinnear at 67 Overhill Road, Dulwich, South London.

Sadly Bon Scott never regained consciousness and was prononced dead the next morning at London's Kings College Hospital.

67 Overhill Road, Dulwich, South London.



Led Zeppelin Drummer John Bonham also died the same year as Bon Scott due to Alcohol consumption, after attending a party at Jimmy Page's house (The Old Mill House) in Clewer, Windsor, which is not far from London. At the coroner's inquest, it emerged that in the 24 hours before he died (September 25, 1980), John Bonham had drunk forty measures of vodka which resulted in pulmonary edema: waterlogging of the lungs caused by inhalation of vomit.

Catherine Zeta Jones is Welsh, to be specific.

Scary pictures of Madge... her arms look like chicken legs. She needs a few juicy rib eye steaks with none of the fat cut off, and maybe a plate of lard to boot. She is hot footing it back to New York ASAP, if not sooner. No more pretending to be a London housewife in a pinny and cardigan. Girls from suburban Detroit never sound right when they affect British accents! ;)

We don't have the beautiful townhouses of London, Paris or New York, but we have countless examples of mostly two storey ones in Toronto, built by British builders from late Georgian style to Late Victorian style. They were known as "Terraces", and the trend peaked around 1877. All pictures are my own.





















they ranged from extremely modest to the more decorative (Second Empire Style)



in many cases the builders replicated pretty much exactly what they had been
building back home in Ireland, England or Scotland:





In general most Victorian housing in downtown Toronto (and there is a very great deal of it) was built with the houses side by side, even if each house was somewhat different in style:



Here is an example of relatively new townhouses built here in the Georgian style:

Older photo, I believe this area has since been largely renovated, but even then, they look very nice.
