Ziggy Stardust's time machine...

“It’s surprising to discover that the disturbing “space invader” cover for David Bowie’s 1972 album, “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars”, was photographed in such an ordinary backstreet. The phone box (featured on the back cover) has been replaced by a more recent model. However, the graffiti on the wall bears testimony to its status as third only to the Tardis and Clark Kent’s changing room in Space Age phone-booth mythology.”
- Time Out (1984)

In picture 13, David Bowie is standing in a fake Heddon Street, built in London’s Rainbow Theatre to launch his “Sound + Vision” tour of that year.
Thank you to all the Bowie fans featured in these images, and particularly to The Ziggy Stardust Companion.
