Lucinda Rogers’ Cards
Contributing Artist Lucinda Rogers who did the beautiful drawings of the East End streets in my first book Spitalfields Life, has now produced this set of six greetings cards printed in London which you can order direct from her website Lucinda Rogers’ Shop and she will post them off to you direct from her favourite Post Office in the Hackney Rd.
Spitalfields drawn from a rooftop in Brick Lane in 2002
Columbia Rd Flower Market drawn from the back of an empty flower lorry looking over the market
Smithfield Market - The General Market has been under threat for many years, but in 2014 was given a stay of execution when the Secretary of State agreed that the proposed demolition to build an office complex was wrong. However, the buildings are still deteriorating while we wait for the owners to swallow their pride and let the alternative scheme go ahead.

The Grassy Bridge - This view down Kingsland Rd from the time when the railway was still out-of-use is now altered by all the buildings that have appeared since and would be rendered unrecognisable by the Bishopsgate Goodsyard proposals
Hackney Bus Garage – This was drawn at night in the bus depot at Hackney Central when Routemasters were still running
