Radio 4: London Street Criers

Heard this program looking at oral history in London based around various trades modern and re-enacted.

How does vocalising something such as a trade help define a space?

Hand drawn maps

I’ve always loved the Strange Maps blog, and I was excited to see that the British Library are hosting an exhibition of Magnificent Maps soon.

The other day I came across this Hand drawn cartography group on Flickr which looks amazing, kinda related is this annotated maps group. Reminded me of UrbanTick’s mental map project. All this was sparked by Londonist’s hand drawn maps.
