I had a great time at Thalie Stéphan exhibition. Please check out her work by clicking on the poster below.
Earlier in the summer I got the opportunity to watch Ken Robinson speak live at The Place. I have always respected his inclusive approach to education. Enjoy !!!
Throughout my working life I have almost always had a part time job within a library and the present is no different. Last week whilst looking through our archives photographs to prepare research for a customer who was researching the history of public libraries in Waltham Forest I came across this photo of Walthamstow library and some of my library assistant forefather (or mothers in this case) I loved the photograph so thought I would share!
When William Booth died in 1912, 80 thousand people lined the streets of the east end of London. A personal link to the Salvation Army for me was that I was born in Mother's Hospital in Hackney (image above) which was originally set up by the Salvation Army for single mothers and private patients however was nationalised in 1948 and closed in the late 1980s. http://www.salvationarmy.org.uk/
