A day in the sun at Spitalfields as the dealers endured another lock-out after the owners of the market decided to host an 'event' in the market interior.  Still, the same sun shone on the brave and at the end of the day there was the added joy of the purchase of a 1st Edition copy of Ian Niall's 1974 memoir 'A London Boyhood' including a photograph of Niall with the byline 'The author, immediately before publication of his first book'.  A look that many an author will recognise only too well.
