Bacon Street DSC_4998

Not far over the foot bridge from Fleet Street Hill/Pedley Street art⇐ there is Bacon Street and a picture of Charlie Burns who led an extraordinary life.  A life which included a private audience with the Pope who gave him a medal for charitable work.  Well known on Bacon Street and the surrounding area, his fascinating story can be found here⇒.

Brick Lane Street Art and Tolerance

Street Art by Stik on Princelet Street DSC_5061

18 pics.  There is a lot of street art in the area of Brick Lane (east London).  The picture above, by Stik on Princelet St, may not seem very remarkable but it shows an essential truth of this part of London.  The picture is self explanatory, its significance is that it is well known and has remained intact for more than three years.  And, more street-art:-

Even on a grey November day there is something to see. The eyes in this drawing are worth a second look.

“They seek him here, they seek him there,  His clothes are loud, but never square.
It will make or break him so he’s got to buy the best, ‘Cause he’s a dedicated follower of fashion”.

Horse Skeleton at Trafalgar Square

This one has been here for a long time.
Lion at Trafalgar Square

There was an event on, so I couldn’t get a shot of the whole square. Here are some samples.Base Nelson's Column


Nelson's Column copy

Nelson’s column is 170 ft tall. In it’s time that was impressive.

As for what follows, sometimes it’s best not to ask.
