Crowning the Irish Royalty in Cricklewood

A monument to the unknown Irish immigrant, The Crown on 142-152 Cricklewood Broadway, NW2 3ED where you can view an emigrant-themed painting by Bernard Canavan and other impressions of the builders of Britain. Up the road, across Cricklewood Lane, is the site of its former neighbour the famous Galtymore.  Across the road on Chichele Avenue, casual labourers still wait from early morning looking for work .
