My Dear Little Grandchildren

The final letters of a Victorian builder of King’s Cross streets

After my father died we found a bundle of letters from the 1870s under the bed at his little London office. They were written to my grandfather by his grandfather Robert James Stuckey. With the help of designer Sue Smallwood they have been turned into a beautiful book.

The most famous street that Robert James Stuckey built Keystone Crescent is now featured in the opening scenes of the film A Boy Called Christmas which is viewable on Netflix and Sky.

It has recently been reviewed in the neighbourhood press.

This first edition of 125 copies is stocked at Housmans 5 Caledonian Road, London N1 9DX who can also post it to you.

Its is also stocked at the Owl Bookshop in Kentish Town and at 19 Camden Passage N1 8EA (Vintage Eyewear Pop Up) at the weekend (between 11 and 5 on Saturdays and 12 and 5) on Sundays.
