We bid farewell to Mr Mick Taylor (1945-2017)today (20/12/17) as he was laid to rest at the City of London Cemetery and Crematorium, E12. He was a dear friend to one of the MyLondon 2018 photo winners, Lou Danby, who took a photo of him which made it into the month of January in the calendar. This portrait by Lou also won the Alex Davies Portrait Award. Friends gathered round to fondly remember Mick who was so much a part of Brick Lane's culture & history as well as the fabric of Spitalfields, including his renowned outfits, for more than 50 years. The Gentle Author of Spitalfields Life gave a touching eulogy as well as a wonderful tribute to Mick's life, the contents of which you can read here. (Highly recommended). Brick Lane will never be the same again - rest in peace, Mr Taylor ...
Hats off to you, Mr Taylor
