An exhibition of old photographs and a browse and buy stall of books about the neighbourhood. We have an archive of photographs going back to the 1970s. We have books by local authors including publications by the Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association, E Beresford Chancellor’s London’s Old Latin Quarter published in 1930, Nick Bailey’s street-by-street history of Fitzrovia published in 1981, and London Recruits: The Secret War Against Apartheid published in 2012. There are many books written about the district and we have a small library of books for reference and lots of information about life in Fitzrovia.
