Jack the Ripper....this picture could be where he use to walk around.
If you know your history there's a house at the end of Highbury Fields, near Highbury Tube Station where the artist Walter Sickert lived and worked. Sickert was a suspect at one time of being Jack the Ripper. This photo was taken just before Christmas when we had quite a bit of fog and doesn't it look spooky. Part of this park has a walkthrough with the old fashioned street lights and is a popular area for visitors. There are carved sculptures out of dead tree's which are just gorgeous.
The next two photo's are of Canonbury Square, not far from Highbury Fields and to look at the photo's you wouldn't think you were in London. The first photo look's like a street down a little village to me! Don't even ask how much the rent would be on one of them houses/flats.
This last photo is at New River Walk and look what's happened. It's an Elder Tree and it has collapsed through the weight of the ivy and snow. Poor thing! I have just been told that the River will be drained next week to get a good clean up from the leaves and debris. Wish I could be there now instead of stuck in an office. Oh well, treat over. Will be posting again on Sunday.
