Hoxton Mini Press Book Launch

Broadway Market & Bethnal Green, London. Thu 9 Jun 2016

  

 
 I got off the bus on Mare St, close to 'The Last Tuesday Society'

 You can see a picture from more or less this position in 1983 on >RE:PHOTO

 I took quite a few pictures around here in the 1980s

 but nothing like this

 and there are new buildings by the canal

 The Hoxton Mini Press was hosting the event at F. Cooke - and a short speech invited us to buy the books

 F Cooke has been here since 1900. One of the few survivors from the 1980s

 

 

 

 For the evening it was serving books not eels

 

 The beer was Five Points Pale, a craft beer brewed in a railway arch at Hackney Downs a short walk away, and

 surprisingly drinkable. Though some in this picture preferred to bring their own. The lollies were nice too.

 
 
I walked back towards Mare St 

Ada St workshops date from 1965-6. Architect Sir Hubert Bennett, (1909-2000), but I didn't stop to take a good picture

Beck Rd, once home of Genesis P-Orridge and Cosey Fanni Tutti often gets used for filming 

and appears in a number of music videos 

For some years Beck Rd was a unique artists ghetto with almost the entire street managed by Acme Housing Association

who managed many short-life properties then intended for demolition and was home to many well-known artists 

Houses here now sell for around a million pounds. 

Back in Bethnal Green, it was also the opening night for the Triumph Pavilion 2016:Energy Pavilion but 

I was too late for the opening in Museum Gardens and it was almost deserted when I arrived 

 

Suddenly things went upside down. I went home.
