Fournier Street (1)

I had supper in Fournier Street.   In the daytime its hyper genteel, a set of houses of eighteenth-century merchants from the 1720s, built by artisan developers.   But in the evening, one gets more of a sense of as it was, with the tower of Christ Church lowering over the backs of silkweavers’ houses.

This is Christ Church seen in the dark:-

    All this is about to be disturbed by looming and insensitive developments nearby, ie.
    Norton Folgate and Brushfield Street.
