The reopening of the East London line has opened up several not-so-far-flung corners of London. I had a long-standing appt to meet a friend there and it took a mere 20 mins to get straight to the heart of the area, and the delights that contains. For a start there is a huuuuuuuuge market. More fruit, veg, fish, clothes, shoes, bags, cooking pots etc than you can shake an incense stick at. That's where I scored this massive amount of cherries from - just £2.
Dalston Mill, which really has to be seen to be believed. (The website just doesn't do it justice.) This gives you a rough idea:
The other reason for going was to see another Louise Riley exhibition. Her stuff is just so amazing. This is my all time favourite piece:
Dalston Superstore. I'd not been there before and it was great - brilliant food and a great way to see the art. This is a new one and really amazing.
But who am I? I am Auntie Alex, wife of Uncle Grumpy. Who finally handed over this photo.
