365  days of eccentricity 

 by Harry Horne cartoons by Jem Weston

This is an incredible day-by-day account of real life in a bizarre Britain during the last year of the last century. It’s about the lives of the people who made this country unique in the final 365 days of the 20th century.  If you were born in 1999 it makes you one of Generation Z, also known as the iGeneration, Post-Millennials or the Homeland Generation. There are no dates set in stone for when this cohort begins and ends, but it is typically from the mid-1990s through to the mid-2000s. Now, for the first time, you can unearth what really happened on your birthday in 1999 and for the rest of that exceptional year. You’ll find the true stories your parents would have spoken about on the day, the week and the month you were born. These are tales of fun, fantasy and of British eccentricity at its best, of murder, mystery, mayhem, madness and miracles. There are stories that will make you laugh, wonder and cry, and astonishing anecdotes from extraordinary people who could have been your mum or dad. These are the tales of the unexpected that you won’t find in the history books or even on the internet. But it is these people who really shaped the nation, for better or worse, in that very special year.

An Englishman's Castle

Covent Garden 1972.

In 1972 photographer Bob Aylott lived for a year in what was to become the last squat in Covent Garden. A Victorian tenement hell hole with guards on the door and no running water or electricity inside. It was home to scores of desperate homeless people, junkies, alcoholics, teenage runaways, beggars and thieves.

That year produced a unique record of down and outs in the centre of London. Dramatic images that captured a life in London that is alien to most. At the time Bob was described by the author Paul Gallico as a modern day Hogarth. His images are now fast becoming collectors’ items.

For the first time a small number of original photographic wet/bromide prints will be available. The prints were made by photographic technician Ron Taylor in a Fleet Street darkroom in London 1972. The un-retouched prints have been boxed and stored in Bob’s attic for the last 47 years.

Prints are presented in museum standard mounts and glass when framed by us. Covent Garden 1972
