‘The Dinosaur of Crouch End’

Click me for a closer look!

Find out where to see me up close here,

A flash of teeth! A fearsome roar!!
Behold! The crouch end dinosaur!!

His scales glistening in the sun,
Are windows, every single one,

Of buildings you may know quite well.
Which ones are they? Can you tell?

And in his jaws each fearsome tooth,
Is fashioned from a Crouch End roof.

He uses them to chew the bitter,
Bones of people who drop litter!

You see, he has great pride in these,
Fair streets that form his feet and knees.

He loves Crouch End, it is his home,
And so with gleeful heart he roams,

The length and breadth of town, and sleeps,
Among the chimney pots and keeps,

The pigeon population down,
And always keeps the clock well wound.

I hear he finds it most divine,
When people cycle up his spine,

And you may hear him whoop and wail,
When someone skateboards down his tail.

So if one day you chance to meet,
A dino walking down the street,

Give him a wave and shake his claw,
For he’s the Crouch End dinosaur.

FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY: Dinosaur Let Loose on the Town!

For all you locals who haven’t had the opportunity to see the delights of what is ‘Barboot’ then tonight should be your night.

Set up and organised by the lovely people at the Haberdashery, ‘Barboot’ is a mini-festival like conversion of the shops along Middle Lane and Park Road. Furniture Shops turn into Galleries, Cafes turn into vintage shops, Vintage shops turn into craft sales, Bars get transported back to the 194o’s. In our humble opinion this is the most fun and interesting time to be in Crouch End.

And for all you followers and fans of the Dinosaur it’s your opportunity to come see the dino up close and in person at ‘Of Special Interest’ on Park Road, where both the Postcards and the Prints will be available.

Also as a one night only Promotion if you slip the Dinosaurs Keeper a piece of Paper with the Magical Markings of ‘ROOAR!!!’, you will receive a 10% Discount on the Full size prints.

Look Forward to seeing you all this evening.

Good Day to you,

JE
