Interesting.
About 4 years ago i lived one station beyond Romford and some Saturdays I would take the train to Liverpool St to have a wander round the City while it was quieter.
Interesting to see who got on the train at which stops.
My stop....train almost empty.
Passengers on it were some suits,some workmen who looked as if they were doing electrical work.
Passengers getting on at my stop,Mums and Dads with kids going for a day out and a few suits.Almost all white and British.
Romford very similar but now a sprinkling of Africans and Asians,not looking as if they're going anywhere for leisure.
Come to Seven Kings and the voices and faces are noticeably East European and they look as if they're off to work.
Ilford and onwards it's a mixture of Africans and Asians,very few white faces,and all look as if they're off to work.
Same going back home,except in reverse.
I think you can get a feel of areas by the arrival or the  departure of  fellow passengers.
This may have altered since then,it may now be a different mix.

you've said on one of your posts that you left 7kings (its seven kings) in the early 1960s,...   how can u say seven kings has become a "GHETTO" if you have been living in western Australia for many years and haven't even visited the place,..

Not so, Yanny!
 
You seem to have missed this rant ...

I've been through Seven Kings loads of times and would hardly say it's anything like a ghetto.  Would be interested to know what your interpretation of a ghetto is  Huh

Without looking it up my definition would be somewhere that I wouldn't  be prepared to go for safety reasons or where I wouldn't fit in with whoever lived there.
So,on a trip to Ilford Lane,which is about as ghetto as some people might think,I would still feel relatively safe although mine may be the only white face.

White faces may be in a minority in Ilford Lane, Toby, but not that much of a minority!
