by the gentle author

If any of my readers should crave some distraction from the forthcoming Referendum on Europe, I shall be giving a lecture about the history of the CRIES OF LONDON at the National Portrait Gallery at 7pm on Thursday 23rd June. Click here for tickets


For those who were unable to visit the exhibition last year, here are panels comprising a selection from my personal collection of CRIES OF LONDON memorabilia.

    I liked this video blog with street sellers a plenty with the all moving cigarette cards, clever tech stuff. This site is an important shop window (seen around the world) for London based Orgs and talented artistic people, many with outstanding merit. Not sure if any have been recommended for a national award such as an MBE. John

    Glad you are still getting interest in the book. It is a fascinating collection that certainly made me re-think my previous indifference to the topic!

    So I gifted my copy to my Swiss brother-in-law, deep down a Londoner, and within the next few days he will gift to his sister-in-law, a resident of London – the cycle re-started :-)
