Spitalfields Life

The Gentle Author, writer of more than 1000 stories posted online at and now published in a critically acclaimed book of the same name, tells some tales of artefacts from Spitalfields which carry the story of the place.

These include a paper bag from London's oldest Paper Bag Shop, a coin from Spitalfields Roman Cemetery, a wooden crate from the old Fruit & Vegetable Market and a quilt made by The Gentle Author.
