Blimey Ray, the traffic probably looked similar a week or so back mate :rolleyes:

I have always been amaised that it was never hit in the last war!

Thanks Jon.
Never got hit? Read the links!

Interesting to look at the cars in the old photos. Puts a date perspective into the frame.
Then, I could actually drive into London and park within a few yards of where I wanted to go.
Now, I can’t even get into the city without a 15 quid congestion charge, and that’s after I’ve driven through 25 miles of confusing road signs - sometimes at least six on a single post - speed cameras, traffic light cameras, dedicated cycle lanes and bus lanes. And if you do get there safely there’s always some jumped-up little traffic warden waiting to get your car towed away. They take no prisoners, their bonus seems to depend on it:-(
Probably after the current problems it’ll be bikes only -?
However, as I don’t have to work there anymore I just hang a camera around my neck, park my car at the dome in Greenwich and go in by river bus, get some good views from that. I pretend I’m a Tourist. I recommend it.

Thing I like about you Aussies is your generosity, but have you run this past Richard first before you agree:-):-)

Ray you do realise this was the Hotel that all you dear soles that made it out here so long ago were priveleged to reside in.
In all the splendours of the day.
The fare was cheap. Price of a pocket handkerchief
I'm not sure we could match that these days  :p

Hi RDWP nice pic. I like the way the poppies stand out, I always think a touch of saturated red can ad something to a picture :-)

Nice picture Mark, but - where is it?
It looks like it has got some cell phone antennas on top to boost the ecclesiastical funds.:-)
Very sharp, you can count the bricks.

OK RDWP, Lester is a nice guy really, but - he does not like to disclose the whereabouts of his pictures just in case we are invaded by aliens in jackboots.
But I am sure he might be persuaded if we threaten to confiscate his camera.:-)
