Roof of the “Museum of the Home”, Geffrye Street, E2

On Geffrye Street near Hoxton Overground station, is the marvellous bakery “Fabrique”. My feet somehow took me there on a sunny day, after I had done my errands in the nearby area. Well, perhaps my errands were not quite nearby. But those cinnamon buns exude an aroma detectable at a considerable distance, like pheromones. So there I was sitting at a table on a sunny pavement and looking for something to sketch. Here’s what I saw.

The “Museum of the Home” used to be called the “Geffrye Museum”.

Here is work in progress on the drawing:

Here are the raspberry buns at Fabrique, and a map so you can find them:

    1. Yes – I like roofs too! I like the fact that sometimes there’s a total landscape up there: TV aerials, Satellite dishes and chimneys. Also the marvellous patterns and slopes. See this one for instance:
      “Buildings in Errol Street”

      And something more modern:
      “Ben Jonson House”

      Many thanks for the comment. So glad you are keeping up your journal: a companion everywhere.
