Event description
East End Trades Guild and Guardians of the Arches members are invited to celebrate the publication of Eleanor Crow's SHOPFRONTS OF LONDON.

About this Event

SHOPFRONTS OF LONDON is a collection of Eleanor Crow’s beautiful watercolours of classic shopfronts to be published by Spitalfields Life on 5th September. The book champions the enduring culture of Britain’s small neighbourhood shops and includes some of our very own members!

As our high streets decline into generic monotony, we cherish these independent shops and family businesses that enrich the city with their characterful frontages and distinctive typography.

This volume includes more than 100 illustrations, accompanied with the story of the shop, its history and its shopkeepers. As well as beloved old and lost shopfronts, there are some recent examples of new shops that have been beautifully designed too – from cheesemongers to chippies.

At a time of momentous change in the high street, Eleanor Crow’s witty and fascinating personal survey champions the enduring culture of Britain’s small shops.

SHOPFRONTS OF LONDON will be available to purchase at this event and we will be collecting the details of those members who would like to be stockists. Both buying and stocking this publication comes with a generous members only discount!

Come and enjoy fellowship, food from the Bakehouse and drinks provided by our members the Five Points Brewing Company, East London Brewing Company and Square Root Soda.

If you are not yet a member of the EETG and would like to attend this event you can join us here.

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
