William Henry Hunt’s “The Father’s Boots” (also known as “Grandfather’s Boots”) (1834)
Watergate Street, Deptford
Today is the one-year anniversary of the first UK COVID-19 lockdown. In some ways, it feels like yesterday. In other ways, it feels like forever ago. I despair that I have achieved so little over the year, yet I am also proud that I managed to do a few things, including these daily posts, which will have their one-year anniversary in 19 days. One reason I started the daily posts was that I was struggling to write. I am still struggling to write. Perhaps the one-year anniversary will give me a good reason to reflect on why and how I created this series.
