DC Special Correspondent and London Walks pen David Tucker writes…
Richard III's’s just blogged about the new Winter 2015-16 London Walks leaflet and the Crime Museum Uncovered exhibition at the Museum of London (see earlier post HERE).
In his review of the exhibition he talks about Ruth Ellis (and doesn’t just tell, he shows – there it is, the murder weapon, the gun, well, a photo of the gun) gunning down David Blakely in the Magdala pub in Hampstead. Star London Walks guide Karen (no, saying that is not pointing the finger at – there’s a whole constellation of “star London Walks guides”), anyway, star London Walks guide Karen is creating and will be rolling out – at 2.30 pm on Saturday, May 7 from Belsize Park Tube – a new walk called South Hampstead – Keats Cadenced, Karen Conducted, Wisteria-Wreathed, Sunny Cinderella Village. One of the stops will be those bullet-pocked tiles outside the Magdala pub. And, yes, that walk is trailed in the new, Winter 2015-16 London Walks leaflet Adam (and London Walker Jem Jaye) blogged about, also earlier today.
And why then? Why May 7?
Take a look at the photo below… With London Walks words mean what they say [“Free”, for example].
