(Photograph) - The Coppermills tower in Walthamstow (right) and MK Electric's factory in the art deco style of the 1930s (far right) are among the unsuspected treasures of North London's Lea Valley. Middlesex University student Brian Budd photographed them for the Lea Valley Industrial Heritage Multimedia Archive which he is compiling for his PhD project.
