Since the book 'A Time for Living ' was launched just over one month ago I have had a few comments regarding the places mentioned in the book. Particularly those that line the banks of the Grand Union canal.
Accordingly I have decided that a picture of the establishments, for those people who have read or are reading the book, or are even contemplating buying the book (please) may help them to put that little bit of reallity into it's place.
The first restaurant/ pub mentioned in the book is The Malt Shovel, at Cowley. (Page 134) A 19th century building, where two of the main characters enjoy an evening meal. You will have to read the book to find our more about the place, but a picture may help.(Opposite)
