I have neglected my East London peregrinations, so thought I would walk up to the Chatsworth Road Sunday market to do my Christmas shopping.
Up the canal:-
Through Victoria Park:-
Past St. Barnabas, Homerton, a ragstone church of the 1840s by Arthur Ashpitel:-
The old Homerton Public Library, opened on the eve of the first world war, designed in impeccable classical style by Sir Edwin Cooper:-
To Chatsworth Road itself, with market stalls and old shops and plenty of places for manicure, if that had been what I wanted, together with, as hoped, small, independent, gift shops, so that I was able to do all my Christmas shopping in one fell swoop (I can’t say which one or everyone will know what I am giving them):-
