Hampstead – Saturday 25th August 2018

I left Peter in the Horseshoe pub in Hampstead (the Camden Brewery started life in this establishment) and popped back to the graveyards at St John-at-Hampstead to look at some of the famous graves there.  Amongst the ‘residents’ are actress Kay Kendall who co-starred in the film Genevieve, landscape artist John Constable and former Labour Party leader, Hugh Gaitskell.  After we met up again we went to visit the Waterstones located in Hampstead High Street.

This shop was a Woolworths before it closed down in the 1970s. You can see an image of it here taken in 1937.

Clockwise from top left are 1. author Eleanor Farjeon (she wrote the words for the hymn ‘Morning Has Broken’), 2. Mary Knox (daughter of the Winnie the Pooh illustrator E H Shepard and an artist in her own right – she illustrated the Mary Poppins books), 3. Peter Cook, satirist and comedian and finally 4. author Penelope Fitzgerald.
