A Samuel Johnson moment


Along Brushfield Street, towards Christ Church Spitalfields: My favourite view in London. I never tire of it. Hawksmoor churches are elegant show-offs in any light but it’s picked-out prettily in this pink sunset. This has been part of my alternative tour of London for a visiting schoolfriend from out of town. It started at the Geffrye Museum via views of the City and Shoreditch from the new East London Line and followed on the next day to the Viewtube, via the Cathedral of Sewage.
