It's Christmas Eve and yesterday, in honour of Bob Cratchit, I traced his footsteps on his journey home from Scrooge's Cornhill office to his humble abode in Camden Town.
I started the day by making a sketch on the Northern Line for a cartoon of Bob…
No details of his journey are listed in A Christmas Carol, so here's the route I planned before setting off…
It's probably not as direct a route as that Bob himself would have chosen, but I tailored it to go through my beloved Clerkenwell – as you will see later today in Stave Four of this special Christmas Eve mini series.
On the way I snapped a few piccies of Bob Cratchit's London Christmas past, present and yet to come. I hope you enjoy them. Happy Christmas!
Next… Stave Two – Cornhill to Little Britain
