JOURNEYS

Cover page of Magazine Journeys with image of audio cassette tape.Slice through Somers Town in time and you have London in miniature. Set between three major train stations, journeys starting or ending in this small area shaped history. From French aristocrats escaping persecution 300 years ago, the first school for girls, to giants of African independence, to the Railways bringing the Irish, this area has hosted incredible journeys: Wollstonecraft, Godwin, George Padmore and Claudia Jones. This publication traces that path, along with more recent arrivals, and local stories - of transformational personal journeys, sometimes navigating our own ethnic identity and sense of belonging.
