My First pilgrimage place is not so far away. Soho to be precise. 18 Greek Street to be exact. The Establishment, Peter Cook's wonderful club. 1961 - 64 ☑️
I imagine the queue on opening night, advance membership sales far exceeded the capacity. Only Peter...♥️
My Second pilgrimage place is a bike ride away. Kensington High Street and the Bristol Cars showroom. If I was lucky Mr Tony Crook would be around. Many a time I spent chatting with him.
If not I would walk around and down into the NCP car park where ?.. Sam? Sorry if I got that wrong, would be washing and polishing Bristol's galore. ♥️
My Third pilgrimage is further afield. Much further. Manchester, and The Whitworth Gallery. For why? To visit my favourite painting.
"A Portrait of Lucien Freud" by Francis Bacon.
I love the excitement I feel as I walk through the entrance, past the cafe to see my old friend. The picture above does it no justice. It's brilliant, imposing, and maybe got me wearing black coats. For sure ♥️
Shout me if you have a pilgrimage to 2 or 3 places x
