4th July, it's the day when America celebrates Independence Day. In 1776 America declared independence from Great Britain and the rest as they say is history. The photograph above is of the Quaker Meeting House in Bush Road, I thought it apt in so much as William Penn, born in London in 1644, himself a prominent Quaker and founder of Pennsylvania lived in Wanstead. Happy holiday America.
