So the reason we discovered Gerald Moira was because we found the bas-relief murals at Picturehouse Central. And the reason for being there there was to see Citizen Jane: Battle for the City. The trailer for the film is already on the Persephone Letter, as well as a photograph of Jane Jacobs, so today and tomorrow – two more photographs of her.
