Cinematic Necropolis - Egypt in NE London

Yan, Tan, Tethera (Anna Garnett)

Nice write-up of a talk around some of London's Egyptianized buildings, with some good pics.

 Yesterday I attended a walk organised by the Petrie Museum entitled 'Cinematic Necropolis', intended to explore Egyptianising monuments in North-East London. Being a newcomer to the city, and indeed to the Islington area, this seemed the perfect opportunity to combine local sightseeing with an interest in Egyptian-style architecture. Despite the threat of rain the group gradually assembled at the Carlton Cinema on Essex Road, Islington, which was the first stop on the walk.
