A New Page…

Posted by Boundary Community Launderette on 11/08/2010

We’ve just published a new page:  Boundary Estate – The Vicar, The Author & the Jago. It tells the story of Father Jay, vicar of Holy Trinity church in the heart of the Old Nichol, and Arthur Morrison, a famous and respected writer in the 1890s. It was Father Jay’s writing a letter to Arthur Morrison that led to him writing ‘A Child of the Jago’. The page also looks at how ‘The Jago’ came to be so closely associated with the Old Nichol. ‘AChild of the Jago’ and Arthur Morrison’s collection of short stories ‘Tales of the Mean Streets’ are both still in print. Eastside Bookshop on Brick Lane usually stock both titles. http://eastsidebookshop.com/
