Vibrant plaques on key buildings mark these locations, guiding visitors on a tour through history.Lucy Harrison, an artist who uses places to get to peoples stories, has uncovered a new old Carnaby Village.

One where the stories are unknown, forgotten or never heard. Miranda SawyerThe Carnaby Echoes app is by artist Lucy Harrison and is commissioned by Shaftesbury PLC. and curated by Futurecity
