‘Camden Town in 50 Buildings' :: Louis Berk and Rachel Kolsky

  • Burgh House New End Square London, NW3 1LS UK (map)

In this illustrated talk, photographer and educator Louis Berk and popular Blue Badge Guide, author and lecturer Rachel Kolsky bring you their favourite architectural treasures of Camden Town, from social housing to contemporary steel and glass, from modest to majestic. Their book, Camden Town in 50 Buildings (Amberley Press, publication date 15 September 2018) should prove a hit with readers. Their previous collaboration in the ‘50 Buildings’ series is the very popular Whitechapel in 50 Buildings, which has already been reprinted several times. Find out how Louis and Rachel made their choices, how Louis managed to take his fabulous photos, and hear Rachel's enthusiastic and entertaining anecdotes of Camden Town past and present. They will also run a book signing after the talk, should anyone wish to purchase any of their publications – this new title and five others.

As this is our Christmas meeting, the talk will be preceded by mince pies and wine/fruit juice from 7pm.

Price: Free to members. Non-members welcome (£1 at the door).
