My Sunday Photo – Fournier Street

My Sunday Photo Fournier Street

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.

      I had no idea there was such an interesting history to this street, love love thinking about what has gone before hundreds of years ago 🙂

    I love the history of London, I research my family tree and have ancestors who lived there hundreds of years ago. I’m going to see if any lived near here #MySundayPhoto

      Wow that’s so fascinating! I’ve made a very half-hearted attempt to research ours but only seem to be able to get as far back as great-grandparents on both sides. I love history so must pursue it further.

    That’s brilliant, who ever heard of half a house!
