A very snappy dresser, on this occasion, Mick was wearing spats, striped trousers and a neckerchief in the style of those formerly worn by porters in Spitalfields Market. Mick was enjoying a coffee at a table outside a cafe in Cheshire Street chatting to Serena, owner of the vintage camera shop next door. Sadly, Serena's shop is no longer but Mick is an enduring reminder of East End characters that are now few and far between.
My favourite location for photography is also covered by The Gentle Author, creator of the wonderful 'Spitalfields Life' blog, so it is no coincidence that we occasionally speak to and photograph the same people. For a further glimpse into the life and history of Mick Taylor, you will find it here:
