Episodes In An Obscure Life – Richard Rowe, 1871:

This shop belonged to my uncle-mother’s brother – afore I got it. I suppose it was hangin’ about here, when I was quite a little un, that first gave me a taste for birds.

[In a terrace of shops and houses opposite Sadlers Wells on Roseberry Avenue, EC1 can be found the work of the artist Maggie Ellenby. She describes the on going work as being ‘like a collage but one that happens in bits over a long period of time’. For more information see: R.D.]
