After Covent Garden we whizzed down to north Greenwich and the Emirates Skyline. Those who know me will probably be aware that whilst fortunately I'm a fearless frequent flyer the same can't be said when it comes to heights in general. So you can imagine how chuffed I was to get to the other side only to discover that the DLR wasn't running and we had to go back over the Thames again and take the Jubilee Line.
The knock on effect of this was that I missed visiting the Edwin Smith exhibition that is currently on at RIBA
I made up for this by buying myself the catalogue and a second hand copy of Olive Cook's English Cottages and Farmhouses for which he provided the photographs.
I have to admit that I'd always thought of him as a photographer of the urban landscape and it has come as a bit of a revelation to see his more rural work. Although the book on cottages was published in 1982 the photos date from 1950 to 1971. Both publications are highly recommended.
