Today I have something particularly for all those of you with small children, or those who remember when they were small; not forgetting those of more mature years who recall when their children (even grand children) were small. A time when they started to draw and paint and you smiled, and you laughed and maybe you cried at the exuberance of their work. Especially when you were informed that the person in the picture was ‘You’!

The old site of The Middlesex Hospital in Fitzrvovia, Central London has been a desolate site for several years since the old hospital was demolished. Finally development is under way – Fitzroy Place will take its place. Click on the link to learn more.
The periphery of any building site in London is secured by high hoardings. These in the past were ugly and roughly painted. Not nowadays – they are shiny, glossy structures on which information about the developers, their plans along with images of architectural mock-ups are displayed.
The developers of Fitzroy Place have taken this process one stage further by inviting the children of All Souls Primary School to contribute drawings and paintings of their neighbourhood and the images in this Post today are a small, a very small, selection from a vast canvas on display of what they drew.
Next time you are in London, do not miss this. I have deliberately included the boards that reference this initiative and include names of all the contributors.
