What’s at Hackney Museum

13 September – 17 January

The Missing Chapter: Black Chronicles

21 November – 28 January
A selection of rare portraits portraying people of African, Caribbean and South Asian descent in Britain during the Victorian era. In partnership with Autograph ABP and part of The Missing Chapter project.
PS. Autograph ABP in Rivington Street by Liverpool Street is selling its massive photographic books at half price. BARGAIN.
PPS Met other familiar seniors and some Up Your Streeters at La Bella Vita by Tesco up in Leytonstone. Rate that highly. Great food and service. It was a busy popular place indeed. I had a bacon and mozzarella toasted granary bread sandwich with mustard sauce on rocket and posh tomatoes for £4. Now I am the one who will say” £4 for a sarni!”  Not this time. Delicious. I was having a project planning meeting with Mary Katherine at East London Radio. All will be revealed in the New Year. Just to say we are doing it for ourselves.
Keep warm.
