After reading at Londonist( ) about a little exhibition at Townhouse Antiques near Spitalfields Market, I decided to take the journey from west to east and take a look myself. I enjoyed the paintings of London houses and streets by artist Marc Gooderham( ). He focuses, in his words, on «the singular beauty to be found in those neglected buildings that have fallen into disrepair as the living city of London continues to evolve around them.» While I was contemplating over the paintings and browsing the books on display, another guy with a cute dog, who also visited this exhibition space, took to the piano that was standing in one corner. His play made me stay a bit longer and I like this place even more. Besides showing inspiring London paintings, Townhouse Antiques also sells books and various other stuff. Randomly, one book caught my attention: One Lump or Two? — a book about tea filled with illustrations by British artist Edward Bawden and a «series of humorous limericks for Twinings Tea». It looks like a fun«essentially British» present. Although I do not know what exhibition is on at Townhouse Antiques at the moment, I was told that almost always something is on display. If you have never been to Townhouse Antiques, you should probably stop by when you are in the area, I am sure it will be worth the visit!
