Welcome back to in love with these times, in spite of these times, the official indie-pop fanzine of Holloway, Highbury and Hackney. 
This month’s image is a striking one: “From Here Health”, by Denys Mitchell. Unveiled in 1994, you may be able to spot that it stands in front of Edinburgh’s Surgeons Hall, a treasure trove of occasionally gruesome souvenirs from the history of the city’s eminent Royal College of Surgeons. It’s title comes from the College motto (Hinc Sanitas). Health to you all, in these despondency-attuned times.
