I am researching the history of 60 Farringdon Road for a small book to mark the opening of The Free Word Centre here in September. I would love to find anyone with memories, photographs or memorabilia associated with this building or its immediate environs that we could include.

From 1875 - 1971 Number 60 was the premises of William & Thomas Robson, wheelwrights and then car body builders, who originally lived in Wood Lane, Highgate. I should particularly like to trace this family.

From 1979 - 2002 the building was used variously as a builders yard and as a mixure of studios, offices and workshops: Photomarkets, AKA Film & Television Services and the Community Music House are the names that I have records of.

I should also like to hear from anyone with information about selling books from the Farringdon Road stalls. Time is alas short and any thoughts will be gratefully received (pippalewis@gmail.com) phone 01749 831132 or 07875862923 (mobile).
