Welcome to Town House, which started life in a shop in Columbia Road in 1997 selling painted furniture and decorative objects. I moved a few years later to an early eighteenth century building in Spitalfields, opposite the wonderful local landmark of Hawksmoor's Christ Church. Weavers lived in the building until about 1820, before two doctors, father and son, moved in; they lived here for fifty years until the 1870's and built what is now the rear gallery as their surgery. A succession of people and businesses followed: a Russian translator, a furrier, coffee rooms and storage for the vegetable market, until at the end of the Second World War it became the Market Cafe, which remained here until 2000 and the arrival of Town House.
