Saturday Snaps

I have not been up there much during the past year, but we used to hang out with friends over in Archway. Not far from where some of my cousins live is Hampstead Heath. We used to walk across the Heath and then go and have a drink at the cafe at the side of Kenwood House. On a sunny weekend that place was always packed.

One of the reasons why we always thought it was an interesting place was a connection to an interesting historical figure – the first Earl of Mansfield, William Murray. The film “Belle” paints a fictionalized version of events, but I like to think that there may have been something liberating in the outlook of this man.
