Cowling and Wilcox on the Holloway Road sells a great range of sketch books. I’ve been filling one of them up with sketches in and around the Holloway Road. I recently completed another stretch of this road – the part which is directly opposite Cowling and Wilcox. It’s another 1.8m long orginial which I have cropped into phone-view sized chunks, to form a record of each of the buildings.
Please drop me a line if you know any local history relating to any of these buildings which you would like me to include here.
