Keith Vaughan Sketches London




I came across these two sketches of London life by Keith Vaughan in The London Magazine, both in issues from 1954. Berwick Street Market (top) and Hyde Park on a Sunday Morning (bottom) are just two of the many contributions to the magazine which the editor John Lehmann wrung from Vaughan.
Also in the magazine is a completely unrelated book review that my eye happened to light upon which includes the phrase "the emotional adventures of middle age" which I rather liked. I'm not there yet, by some way, but I am heartened by the fact that someone can write of those years with such a sense of things not being over but rather being full of event and having a positive flavour all of their own.
