Aside from last weekends roundup, the previous blog was a slightly macabre affair, concerning human remains that had ... well ... remained for hundreds of years. So, instead here are a few things that have appeared in London, or at least on my radar.
First of all, on Wednesday I happened upon a tank parked on a side street behind Angel tube station. I'm sure there's a perfectly good reason for it to be there, and aside from undeniable strangeness of the sight, it looked quite at home next to a moped.
The sign on the wall next to where the tank was parked, made it even more amusing. Incase you can't read it on the above photo, here it is a bit closer.
I would pay money to watch Islington Council trying to clamp that one.
I've walked down Bermondsey Street loads of times, from Tooley Street, underneath the London Bridge railway line. Tonight was the first time I noticed a black door, rather like the one on Downing Street behind which David Cameron currently resides. It has even got a number 10 on it. It seems to have just appeared. It is quite possibly something to do with Shunt, who run various arts events in the arches, but who knows. I tried knocking on the rather splendid door knocker, but to no avail. If anyone knows anything about it, please feel free to let me know.
And finally, last week I came across this poster, just off Old Street towards Farringdon.
After my initial flurry of excitement, I found the statue (along with three others) only moments later and was mildly disappointed to discover it was in fact just an advertising campaign for a local company. Still, I liked the idea.
