One drunken night in Spitalfields I walked past Tracy Emin on my way to Liverpool Street Station.
I turned and called out “TRACEEE!”.
She looked round and I felt guilty.
“I love all your stuff! I always ‘ave… and you.” I shouted.
She smiled that big beautiful wonky smile of hers and said “Thank you”.
That was the night I learned to love Tracy and all her works.
I-Spy: The Sights of London
Does anyone remember these?
I used to buy these from the W.H. Smith’s stand in Liverpool Street Station.
Then I used to walk and cycle around London answering the questions.
The books were edited by a journalist who called himself “Big Chief I-Spy”.
John and I went to visit “Big Chief I-Spy” who at the time lived at Wigwam-by-the-Water, 4 Upper Thames Street.
Note the price 6d (a tanner) which is the equivalent to 2½p, today.
The News Chronicle folded in October 1960 and I-Spy was taken up by the Daily Mail.
