Ruth Hargreaves

Ruth grew up in a south London town that is so far south she constantly justifies her status as a born and bred Londoner with "but it's a London borough! It's a LONDON BOROUGH!!". Her main loves are analysing the behaviour of humans on public transport, illustrated children's books, and looking out for unique bench dedications around the country. She takes photos of them and currently has a collection of almost 200.
