London ain't no place for teddy bears

Remember Paddington? The migrant bear-worker who arrived to London from "darkest Peru" hidden in a cargo shipment ; no one could pronounce his foreign name (all too familiar) so he was re-named Paddington bear by the Brown family, who took him to their posh house in west London.

Well not all migrant teddy bears are as lucky. Here are some pictures documenting their miserable condition, down and out in south London.

Cheer someone up who doesn't feel well. Wearing a flannel robe with hankie, and adorable fuzzy slippers, teddy bears will be a companion in good times and bad.
