Holy Week: Thek's Tomb

I've had this image of Paul Theks Tomb sculpture on my desktop for quite sometime.
Over the Easter period I thought of it .

Holy Week : Palm Sunday in Fitzrovia


At last I've managed to film this religious feast/festival. Every year  the parishioners of All Saints Church, Margaret Street, Fitzrovia walk the streets north of Oxford Street, singing & carry palms in remembrance of Jesus Christ's entrance into Jerusalem. Its quite a spectacle and unexpected thing to stumble across.

Werwolves & Spiritual Equipment

I picked up two books in the basement of Any Amount of Books on the Charing Cross Road.

Werwolves, from the library of Jeremy Beadle.
The inside cover is stamped . . .

From the amazing book collection of Jeremy Beadle, MBE, TV Presenter ,Writer , Hoaxer ,curator of oddities , philanthropist and book collector - 12.4.48 - 30.1.08

He had one of the biggest true crime collections in the world, it amounted to thousands and thousands of books.

The second book is nearly 100 years old, it is a bound collection of spiritual booklets by the Brighton based Charles H.Usher.
I've looked up his name and came across a number of his pamphlets on a website that warns, 'as C.T.Studd (the great missionary) might say : Most of these books are not for the 'namby-pamby-milk-sop-softie' Christain'.

Here are some of the titles for sale,

We Wrestle NOT!
The Titanic Tragedy God Speaking to the Nations
Origin of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture
& Visions by William Booth - (Founder of the Salvation Army.)
