Not only are Fitzrovia’s streets and buildings of great architectural and historic interest, but in many of them lived people who have shaped the world of art and politics. Come and find out more about this inner London district at this small exhibition where you can browse or buy books about Fitzrovia by local authors and many others. 

From E Beresford Chancellor’s London’s Old Latin Quarter published in 1930 containing John Tallis’ drawings of Tottenham Court Road and Goodge Street, Nick Bailey’s street-by-street history of the Camden part of Fitzrovia published in 1981, to London Recruits: The Secret War Against Apartheid published in 2012. And there’s Charles Dickens, John Constable, and the ordinary residents who tell their own stories of life in this inner city neighbourhood.

You’ll find lots to discover about the buildings and streets in this small library and bookstall.

This event is part of the Fitzrovia Festival 2013.
