 Two pictures taken at Hampstead heath, a nice park near her flat where Barbara and I often went for walks




The underground station Belsize park. Barbara took the undergorund from here everyday to go to Southhampton row, where the art college is. To reach the trains you can chose between taking an manually operated elevator or taking a very steep and long staircase. Barbara often took the stairs as she did not like to be in the crowded elevator cabin.




The route Barbara walked every day from her bedsit to the underground station. On the upper right corner you can see the beginning of the beautiful park Hampstead Heath. It is often used as location for shooting movies (for example Notting Hill).
