Walthamstow Dog Track

Is this an icon?

or

Walthamstow Dog Track

Because it's more than just an old building. It represents an old-fashioned leisure pursuit that crosses several generations. It makes me excited just looking at it. It brings back strong memories from my childhood.

I've lived near the dogs all of my life and it's a great land mark. No matter where i've been, coming back and seeing it's neon sign lets me know im home.

I'll say - I remember it as a place you could get entry, have a bet, have a drink, have a chicken-in-a-basket (another icon, perhaps?), shout yourself stupid cheering on the dogs while freezing your bits off in the cold night air, and still have change from a tenner!
