Two new #spycops profiles. 1/17 Wilf Knight.

He appeared in the documentary #TrueSpies in 2002, talking freely about the SDS, how it was set up. 鈥淲e called them the 'hairies' because they all grew their hair long down to their shoulders.鈥鈥

More on my visit to Crossbones Graveyard, an inconsecrated medieval burial ground in Southwark, mostly for paupers & sex workers. You can read about its history & why I love it so here鈥

Here, I am setting off. I found Fox-and-Cubs on my way. A goid sign. Me on the trainFox-and-Cubs, or Orange HawkweedLooking out at the River Medway
Going to Crossbones means passing close to Borough Market, which was particularly vibrant on the edge of Hallowmas. I love the buzz of Borough Market but it is a bit overwhelming at times. Often I just look at the lovely veg & then run away!

Here's the entrance to Redcross Way, where the gates of the Crossbones shrine is found. I love this new swan mural under the railway bridge!

This is London's 'other side'. Southwark Cathedral was once called St Mary Overie, or St Mary Over 'Ere ~ 'over the river' if you're posh. Swan muralBillboard ~ London's other sideLove not hateThe Redcross Way railway bridge

Il y a 2-3 ans, j'ai commenc茅 脿 "collectionner" et 脿 renseigner dans une base de donn茅es des pochettes de disques dans l'optique de r茅diger sur #spacefiction un billet portant sur l'usage des cartes (et globes) sur ces derni猫res... Corpus de pas loin 200 pochettes 脿 ce jour ! 1/4
Et puis, le temps me manquant, j'ai mis le projet de c么t茅... Je le prendrai tr猫s certainement plus tard, et d鈥檃illeurs, de temps en temps, quand je tombe dessus, je rajoute encore des pochettes au dossier. 2/4
Mais en attendant, plut么t que de les laisser sur mon disque dur, j'ai d茅cid茅 de les partager ici et de me lancer dans un #thread au long cours. Il y a des albums de tous les styles de musiques et des artistes de tous les niveaux. 3/4
