Life and Lives in Spitalfields, London

In the folder of personal blogs dedicated to describe the many facets of everyday life, Spitalfields Life occupies, to my mind, a distinct position. It is indeed one of the most interesting territorial blogs around. Born out of an act of love for the Spitalfields neighbourhood, in the East End of London, and its people, meticulously written each day since August 2009 by it creator, The Gentle Author, the blog interweaves extremely interesting research in local history and a caring attitude towards the many encounters, places, institutions and friendships that forge the territorial experience. A source of never ending inspiration for urban explorers and a gentle testimony of the affects that nourish common life and epochal transformations in an urban village.
