Easter holidays (day 2 of 4)

Today we've been to Walthamstow visiting William Morris Gallery.

Can't say I loved his design (which is very respected and even considered iconic in England) much - well, it's quite impressive when thinking of manual operations needed to produce those things in XIX century but - you know. On the other hand, political side of that gentleman's life to all appearances was interesting indeed, and the exhibition was really nice giving enough information, names and keywords to search then for the details, and actually raising the willingness to do this.

But what I loved most was this shoulder bag from 1880s looking *exactly* like modern ones. Amazing, isn't it?

And that's the corner of the gallery seen from the park behind the building:
