This premises on Great Portland Street is using pop-culture magazines to black out its windows while it undergoes refurbishment.

I can’t decide if it’s cool or sacrilegious!

The naive person within me thinks that they found some magazines under some stairs somewhere and decided to use them to cover up the windows.

The realist in me knows that they bought these magazines on eBay specifically for this purpose.

I spotted Wham, Elvis, Paula Yates, Genesis, Bananarama and Cliff Richard. There are plenty more in the window.
