    Nice. Berwick St has completely changed. It amazes me that some of the dodgy brothels are still holding out TBH.

    Where the Trocadero once was, complete with Sega World and Laserquest and a multiplex and Namco funland is just a tat souvernir shop. Tottenham Ct Rd, no longer the electronics hub of yore, just a few little indie camera and PC repair places now. And Oxford St, more tat shops replacing once decent stores. Even the old United Colours of Beneton Store just opposite Nike Town on Oxford Circus seems to be struggling to find tenants.

    The best thing about central London is a lot of the old boozers still seem to be doing well. in Soho and Fitzrovia anyway you can still find some very decent pubs. Very little to go shopping for though.

    On waste ground behind London Bridge. I have no idea why there looks to be some Royal Navy airframe lying there DownwardDog - any ideas what it is ?

    Just passed gay hussar on Greek Street and it's closed, since last summer supposedly. But theres seemed to be several shut shops there... Any one know why? Just rents? Or is something else going on?

    I think someone is waiting for John Dillinger to come out of that play.

    Great photo.

    Is that really the silhouette of the train driver?

    I always knew editor was a good photographer but some of the first pics on this thread a more than just good.

    I worked in Soho in the seventies so there's some memories provoked there.

    I don't know how I missed this thread. I'll be looking for it in future.

    I recall being taken in there about the age of 6 , there was also one in Trafalgar Square , but that Victoria one is an art deco triumph.
