I went out first thing this morning to the new local branch of Sainsbury’s to buy a copy of the Weekend FT to check that the article I’ve written about Stepney Green has appeared in the colour magazine. It has (p.27). I found it harder than expected to write a longer piece (well, it’s not that long), having got used to the blissful superficiality of a blog entry. And it’s odd to see it illustrated with someone else’s photographs, including a basketball game in Bethnal Green Library Park and a brown and white sheep in the local farm. You can spare yourself £3.80 by reading it online (just google Saumarez Smith Stepney Green).
