Caitlin Davies - Camden Lock and the Market

Remember Camden lock back in the day..... 

One of our many talented customers, Caitlin Davis is about to publish a book all about the Market. Focusing on its formation in the 70's right through to present day. The emphasis is really on the 80's though when the market was a hotbed of creative talent and saw many of current big names in fashion and media start their career. With some amazing facts, great photos including the one below - who is this mystery man?  the book is a great read and a visual treat.

Camden Lock and the Market available now available in store. Reviewed today in the Kentishtowner .

Caitlin's previous book - Taking the Waters - A swim around Hampstead Heath (currently on sale in store and online) is a really beautiful book and we were interested to hear stories from our customers sharing their own memories of the ponds - and in one case a customer even recognising herself in on of the pictures.

Beautifully illustrated by an incredible archive of photos from the 1900s, right up to Ruth Corney’s exquisite photos of the modern day Heath, what’s striking is how many people are smiling, in snow or sunshine. This is a happy book. Even if you hate swimming and have never even been to London, I’d defy anyone not to find some pleasure in the pages. review by Kentishtowner 30th May 2012
