zozimus Launch of Len Graham's book on Joe Holmes (35) RE: Launch of Len Graham's book on Joe Holmes 13 Oct 10


Hi Matthew,
Capel Street was developed in the last quarter of the 17th century and takes it's name from Arthur Capel, Earl of Essex, lord lieutenant from 1672 to 1677. It was developed by Sir Humphrey Jervis, who was later lord mayor of the city, and quickly established itself as a centre of fashion and beau monde.Close by is Henrietta Street, where the first great Georgian developements took place in the 1720s, and confirmed the northside as the fashionable end of town for a short period of time.
So Liberty Boy's reference to Louis Copeland may make sense after all! (hope he'll get me a pint in Calre for sticking up for him!)
Meanwile, Len's book is a treasure. Len gave a great talk on Eddie Butcher at the recent Eddie Butcher festival and showed some video clips of himself, Eddie and Joe Holmes, which brings the book to life. I hope he brings them to the launch.
Finally, I will be in Liverpool this weekend. Anything good on Friday night?
