Most people see Nicholas Hawksmoor’s beautiful Christ Church from the axis down the centre of Brushfield Street. This is a striking vantage point, but is somehow distracted by all the noise and activity from Commercial Street. While doing research in the area, I came across this amazing view from an old weaver’s loft in Wilke’s Street (credit to the Gentle Author). This inspired the drawing that captures a quieter and more humble view of this great building.
