JANUARY 2018 “This is Mick Taylor, known as ‘Teapot’, ‘Little Harvey’ and more nick names” says photographer Lou Danby. “Lots of people know him as he’s been round a bit. People had thought he was dead so I took a photo of him in front of this mural on Brick Lane!” Mick grew up in Clapton, Hackney but has lived near Spitalfields for years. Lou says he’s one of the last proper Cockneys. His upbringing was hard and they were very poor, says Lou. “At the same time, he had a lot of fun and there was a lot of love.” Mick, 72, met Lou five years ago. “She’s a great help. She comes around and takes me for walks.” Lou enjoys going down to the Nomadic Gardens, “a really nice piece of waste land next to the railway tracks near Brick Lane where everyone sits around doing artwork and being really nice. It’s a place where people can go and broaden their horizons.”
