11 churchgate, leicester. This building was once a coffee shop owned by thomas cooper. It was here in the early 1840s that the chartist movement in leicester was organised, with cooper at the forefront. Ah, it still reeks of radicalism! It's a lovely sunny afternoon here again, after an otherwise dull and rainy day. And i bought some nice shoes.. Good stuff all round.

Go up to Leics thru work now and again and areas like Highfields are full of history as well as present day struggles.

I remember that shop and it doesn't reek of radicalism it smells of damp newspaper!
