Emery Walker’s Islamic collection opens to public in London
Objects, jewellery and art collected worldwide by the antiquarian and photographer on display for first timeThe printer, photographer and antiquarian Emery Walker loved beautifully made things and when in 1903 he moved into a small house overlooking the Thames at Hammersmith, now preserved as a museum, he filled every inch of it from cellar to attic with his modest treasures, some bought for pennies in bazaars and markets.His many friends, who included George Bernard Shaw and William Morris, laughed affectionately at his determination when he spotted a piece of craftsmanship. A photograph in the house shows Walker in a three-piece suit and hat in a square in Toledo in 1905, clutching his umbrella and raincoat, but also a large Islamic jug which still has pride of place in hi

Give us your views
If you’re a private tenant living in a rented shared property, a private landlord, or managing or letting agent, we want to hear from you.

We are reviewing our Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) additional licensing scheme, and we are keen to hear your views on what has worked well and what you think we can improve.

HMOs are shared homes, including house and flat shares, student homes, bedsits and some buildings converted into flats, which are occupied by three or more people who are not part of the same family. We introduced the additional licensing scheme which goes further than national mandatory licensing, in 2015 to help improve poor conditions in the private sector by requiring landlords to be licensed to rent out shared properties.

We want tenants to have safe and decent homes and to know that the

The Paul Welsh Column: Appearing on television programmes about television programmes
Well here we are again and I must admit I hope by the time you read this it will have cooled down a bit. It a lovely summer but a bit too hot to sit in my garden for long, so I have retreated indoors to write this column but I wish I had air conditioning. I am aware that these articles now appear in several newspapers covering a large area but I tend to forget they also appear online so can be read anywhere. For instance, I had a nice email from Larry in Los Angeles who is a distinguished musical director for stage and screen productions. He was remarking on my memories that appeared in this column a couple of weeks ago about a star-studded awards ceremony I attended in London many years ago. Can you believe it but Larry was the musical director for

Camden Town

Camden Town tube station is a major junction on the Northern Line and one of the busiest stations on the London Underground network. It is particularly busy at weekends with tourists visiting Camden Market and Camden High Street.

Camden is well-known for Camden Market which is a major tourist attraction, particularly busy at weekends, selling variety of fashion, antiques, lifestyle and bizarre goods; they (and the surrounding shops) are popular with young people, in particular those searching for alternative clothing.

It is an area popular with overseas students who come to Camden to learn English and find a job in one of the local bars or restaurants. The oldest established language school is Camden College of English, which is located at the Chalk Farm side of the market.

The Regent's Canal runs through the north end of Camden Town and is a popular walk in summer.

Camdem Town tube station began life as part of the original route of the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway (CCE&HR) (now part of the Northern Line). As the line here branched into two routes, to Hampstead and to Highgate, the design of the station was rather unusual, shaped like a V. The line to Hampstead (now the Edgware Branch) is under Chalk Farm Road; the line to Highgate (now the High Barnet branch) is under Kentish Town Road. With the narrowness of the roads above, and the necessity to keep directly beneath them to avoid having to pay compensation to landowners during construction, on both lines the northbound platform is directly above the southbound one.

At the apex of the V is a junction allowing northbound trains to take either of the branches north, and likewise allow the trains south from the branches to join the single southbound track. This resulted in four connecting tunnels. When the CCE&HR and City & South London Railway lines were joined together after the City & South London Line became part of London Underground, a short extension from the Euston terminus of the City & South London was built to connect with each of the two northerly branches. This added another four tunnels to the junction, making it the most complex junction on the network.

John Rocque Map of Hampstead (1762).
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map of Hampstead covers an area stretching from the edge in the northwest of present-day Dollis Hill to Islington in the southeast.

John Rocque Map of London (1762) FREE DOWNLOAD
John Rocque (c. 1709–1762) was a surveyor, cartographer, engraver, map-seller and the son of Huguenot émigrés. Roque is now mainly remembered for his maps of London. This map dates from the second edition produced in 1762. London and his other maps brought him an appointment as cartographer to the Prince of Wales in 1751. His widow continued the business after his death. The map covers central London at a reduced level of detail compared with his 1745-6 map.
