The Cargill Street Commune on Cargill Street

It’s an appropriate name for a three storey house with 7 or 8 bedrooms – and in a shared living situation this size it’s a matter of either going it alone or pulling together a group.

It’s hard to know from the signs byline which way this flat leaned, but it could be either so long as everyone subscribed to the stealing=sharing philosophy. What was up for grabs is anyone’s guess. The flat was named in 2001 when Max Johns and his flatties first encounter it, it lasted through Max’s two year tenancy and at least another year after that.
