    I’m sorry to see these wonderful lectures won’t be available to your world of readers.

    Like others, I was hoping technology would offer those of us abroad the chance to meet the speakers and learn even more about Spitalfields.

    Treat yourself to the book of Maps by Adam Dant. The volume is suitably large, beautifully designed, and will provide hours of enjoyment. For the map-lover, the armchair traveler, the graphic design maven, and history buff. (and for anyone who loves to sit in an armchair with a huge book open on their lap)

    Onward and upward.

    I love the map of the coffee houses, so interesting. Back in the 80s I used to have lunch at a place on Cheapside that had a plaque to say it had historically been a coffee house.
