In 1995, to celebrate the area’s history and cultural diversity, 25 cast iron roundels, with 20 different patterns, were set into pavements around Spitalfields. Each roundel, looks about the same size as the Victorian 'coal-hole' cover. It carried an image telling a story. The artist, Keith Bowler, who has lived in Spitalfields for many years, designed them and had them cast locally. This one I found at Brick Lane just at the pavement of Christ Church School. You can see two children, dressed in 18th century costume, shown as pictures in a book and surrounded by eight pencils. My new task is to find all of them after all they are not coal hole, but the roundels are worthy to look for.
