A quick post tonight covering a little bit of London – a sort of zig zag photo tour in the cold and snow (but not always) as night marches on the city. The starting point is the same as two days ago – Little Venice and eventually finishes at Piccadilly Circus three hours and almost 250 photographs later. Light snow constantly fell. Transport mode consisted of a mix of walk and tube. Enjoy the pics!
Little Venice as dusk arrives – the canal was even more solid than the other day!
The famous horse bridge (or blue lamp bridge) at Little Venice
Under the canal bridge at Paddington. Cafe boats May Green and Darcle doing well despite the weather
Snowy tube roundel at Paddington canal side
Paddington open with restricted services. Heathrow Express unusually being worked by ‘Connect’ stock!
A little bit of Leslie Green tiling at Regent’s Park tube station
Snow covered JFK memorial Great Portland Street (sadly still not restored since last year’s vandalism)
Baker Street’s 1863 platforms – hopefully an unusual perspective!
Snowy Met track at Baker Street. There was a siding on the outside of the tracks until about the 1930s
Grays Antiques store, Bond Street. Reputed to have the River Tyburn in its basement!
Crossrail station Bond Street snow bound for the first time. Buildings clearly still very incomplete
Almost totally white environment! This is Avery Row
FDR and Churchill enjoying the snow – their feet must be getting bloody cold!
Old Bond Street snow laden due to infrastructure works that’s prevented traffic along here for many weeks
Buildings where the Beatles did their last ever public gig as part of their ‘Get Back’ sessions
Sackville Street looking towards Piccadilly
Veolia’s road gritter in Regent Street. Veolia are the contractors for Westminster council
Piccadilly Circus in the snow. Tourists love it in this weather!
