The album cover photo for David Bowie's 1972 sci-fi rock opera The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars was taken outside the furrier K. West formerly located here at 23 Heddon Street in London.

A commemorative plaque currently marks the exact spot. The iconic original K. West sign was stolen by a fan sometime in 1982, but it was recovered for a David Bowie art exhibition in 2012.
