Jimi Hendrix and his girlfriend Kathy Etchingham moved into a tiny two storey apartment at 23 Brook Street in London’s West End in 1968. They remained in the flat whilst he recorded Electric Ladyland leaving in 1969. The flat is now home to an administrative office for the Handel House Museum which is housed next door at number 25 where George Frideric Handel lived from 1723 until his death in 1759.

The tile in the photograph above is the work of the renegade potter Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness. To see more of Carrie’s work or to purchase her crockery, hand printed tiles or screen prints visit her website by clicking hereR.D.
