This afternoon, I had the opportunity of visiting 19 Princelet Street, like I said I would. It worked out as quite the time journey. First I paid a visit to the media giant Bloomberg for a meeting. The place reminded me of the James Bond movie with the mad media mogul - was it Golden Eye? Anyway, very, very 21st century, what with visitor passport pictures taken on the spot and published on Bloomberg right away!
Ten minutes later, I found myself entering an unrestored 18th century listed building in the narrow streets of Spitalfields. The museum is quite stirring and gives you a real sense of the history (and misery) of the different waves of immigration to this great city - with the simplest of means! Do go there if you can - it's very much worth paying a visit! It is still open until Sunday, and the other public openings are usually announced on their website.
