Just east of Commercial street in Tower Hamlets, Shoreditch is Jerome Street, one of many little streets in the area. The old home of Godfrey Phillips Ltd, tobacco and cigarette manufacturers is at the corner of Jerome and Commercial. The lower level with the red brick and large windows is now a restaurant.

below: An assortment of stickers and paste ups. A man with Mickey Mouse ears – Magic Kingdon, Join the Club. Three of the posters are in Italian – one is mostly obscured by the skull, the one below the skull translates to “I have the memory of a goldfish” and the one above Mickey ears is a longer description of how this person can’t describe is love for another. The poetry is the work of Movimento per l’Emancipazione della Poesia.

below: Another assortment of stickers and paste ups. Another Join the Club, Mickey mouse based paste up – this time with “Where dreams come true”. Also, more Face the Strange but instead of flying ducks, we have fruit portraits. Do men look better with grapes or oranges instead of faces? I like the matching gloves on strawberry man. Lastly, I think that’s Queen Elizabeth in the pink and blue poster, along with I made you a moron. Think of it what you will. I suspect that the Rebel Rabbet sticker was added later.
below: Stick figures with something to say, even if it’s things like “Danger is only safe in pairs”, “Once all this was just a memory” and “You can’t paint a hen”.
