Old & New London


This is an occasional new column of bits ‘n’ bobs I’ve seen wandering about town with mobile in hand. The title comes from the most extraordinary set of books ever produced on London, which I’ll cover soon.

I’m not sure what the goat is doing on the stack of crates in Spittalfields, but it’s rather sweet. It wasn’t here the last time I passed.
And the top of the other building, near the wonderfully named Frying Pan Alley, by Liverpool Street Station, looks vaguely Austrian while the base has gone for a sixties trompe l’oeil effect.

    Perhaps “Paddy McGinty, an Irishman of note” was written here?
