Drawing on what you have learned from the Making Social Lives DVD and Learning Companion 1, outline how some benefit and others lose on a street that you know.

The street I have chosen to look at is Cricklewood Broadway. I have chosen this street as it is close to where I live and I know the street well. Cricklewood Broadway has over a 100 shops, restaurants and stores that cater for different groups of people and are used for different purposes. Below I will be outlining how some people benefit and others lose and how inequalities and differences are produced in these groups of people who use Cricklewood Broadway. The groups of people I will be focusing on are race/ethnicity, age and non-abled bodied people.   I will be comparing Cricklewood Broadway to City Street in Cardiff.
Cricklewood Broadway is a very similar to City Street. I have noticed that the shops and buildings are forever changing to cater for certain groups of people. This in effect has caused certain groups of people to use these shops whereas other people lose out, for example in Making Social Lives DVD, Lloyd Robson meets a shopkeeper, Janet Symmons in the Xquiste Africa shop (‘Making social lives on City Road’ 2009, scene 2). This shop benefits the ethnic minority but also produces inequalities and differences in race as some people may feel they are unable to use the shop due to the particular products sold and the market it caters for. Cricklewood Broadway also has shops that cater for the ethnic minority and race for example, the African Food shop and an Indian Garment shop. I have noticed that these shops are mainly used by people of the African and Indian origin, therefore people not of this origin lose out. This creates inequalities and differences in race and ethnic groups between people who are using Cricklewood Broadway.
There are several cafés along Cricklewood Broadway which are used by working men/women during the morning and older people during the day for social activities....
