Photo 11: Sacred to the Memory

Sacred to the Memory, then and now, dated grunge

St Anne’s Church, Newell Street, Limehouse, London E14

• Vici MacDonald on the Sacred to the Memory photo: “Hawksmoor’s looming St Anne’s is an unchanging spot in an ever-mutating area, its gravestones dating back centuries. The people whose acid-worn names so magically catch the afternoon light couldn’t have imagined horseless carriages, let alone that their memorials would one day end up gathering moss against a car park wall.”
