Former Victorian gin palace The Cauliflower, in High Road, Ilford, is displaying work from printmaker Lynne Blackburn, who runs her own company.

To create her photographs, many of which were taken inside the pub, Lynne breaks them down into their individual colours and reassembles them layer by layer, using one colour at a time.

She said: “The way in which the colours build up to create the image is reminiscent of the way the history of a building is built up in layers over time.

“It feels great to be bringing some local history and culture to the local people of Seven Kings.”
