On Friday Pete and I went for dinner in Whitechapel. It was such a lovely evening that I decided to walk from the office in London Bridge, pottering down London’s back streets away from the drinkers and Friday night party people. These beautiful character houses, Eleven and Eleven and a Half can be found on Fournier Street in the East End. Even after my 16 years in this city there’s still so much of it to discover. But it turns out this particular street has one of the most fascinating histories which can you read more about in this New York Times article.
