From Clive Bettington, JEECS chairman
1. Jewish traders of Petticoat Lane
Frank Pittal, one of the last Jewish traders on the Lane, is organising a celebration of the market.
The event will be on Sunday October 28 at the Brady Centre (192-196 Hanbury Street, London, E1 5HU). There will be a supper and an exhibition and I shall be giving a talk. Tickets will be £25 each.
If you know other people who have links with the Lane do let them know.
2. Isaac Rosenberg memorial
This matter is still ongoing and it is apparent that the bust will now only be unveiled in 2019. We have had trouble finding a site as several places of higher education have been less than co-operative.
I think I have now found a suitable home for the planned bust of the great World War I poet and artist but we still need to do more fundraising. Any assistance will be appreciated. Further information will be sent in due course.
