Nursing home residents, nurses beautifully re-create iconic album covers on lockdown

Quarantine hasn’t stopped these seniors from rocking.

North London’s Sydmar Lodge Care Home has been under lockdown for four months, but restricted living hasn’t curtailed residents’ creativity: The nursing home’s seniors and carers alike have been spending their time re-creating classic album covers.

In a now viral tweet, the home’s activities coordinator, Robert Speker, posted a selection of side-by-side shots showing iconic albums next to the re-created versions of them. These include a version of Adele’s “21,” where a resident assumes the same facial expression and head positioning, but replaces the original label with her own name and age — Vera, 93.

In a version of Taylor Swift’s “1989,” a resident wears the same shirt as Swift, but puts her own initials and birth year at the bottom of the Polaroid-design — R.C., 1922.

Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA” is transformed into Martin Steinberg’s “Born in England,” with the St. George’s Cross instead of America’s stars and stripes, and David Bowie’s “Aladdin Sane” is redone as Roma Cohen’s “Sydmar Lodge.”
