Grayson House is part of the Pleydell Estate.
1 hr 40 mins from the small park called Radnor Street Gardens.
Grayson House on the left, and Gambier House in the background.
Next to me, for the entire duration of the drawing two men played ping-pong. The children came out of school at 4pm, and wanted to use the ping-pong table. But the men said no.
I drew Gambier House from the same park, in March, on a peregrination around City Road
I discover from the amazing “Streets with a story, The book of Islington” by Eric A Willats FLA, that “Grayson House (1961)” was ” named after Frederick George Grayson, a superintendent of Radnor Street Sunday Schools and Mission, formerly in Radnor Street.”
Mr Willats’ book lists streets and some buildings in Islington, including as he says “what has come to my notice up to the early summer of 1986.” It is in the Islington Museum.
