TW Ė a couple of lovely close-ups yesterday and today.
Denni Ė plenty of motorists park on the pavements over here, but Iíve never seen them using bus-stops as carports.
bhs Ė that quilt is fabulous.
Thereís something very attractive about harbour ferries like the one in Renís photo, or the Staten Island ferry. I donít think Londonís Woolwich ferry will ever seem quite so fascinating, even though itís free to everyone.
The department of state that we used to call the General Post Office has been butchered (or should I say thatchered?) into fragments with strange names like Parcel Force and Post Office Counters, and its old London headquarters in St Martinís-le-Grand belongs to a Japanese securities firm. But the nearby Postmanís Park survives. The little shelter at the back has little enamel plaques commemorating acts of heroism by humble public servants, like the one in the inset for a policeman who lost his life rescuing a barmaid from a burning pub.
