I was on my way to Shoe Lane Library the other day to see the great Country & Western display case when I took a wrong turning and found myself in Red Lion Court and saw this great sign high up on the wall. It reads Alere Flammam (To feed the flame) and is the sign of Abraham Valpy an 1820’s printer and is also the building which was the original HQ of the scientific publishers Taylor & Francis/Richard & John E Taylor. It’s great what you find when you take a wrong turning! P
