Entry for April 10, 2008 – A day in The City

Posted by HelenEdith on April 10, 2008

I missed out on a presentation I needed to attend in Basildon last Friday and so I went up to Leadenhall Street to catch it today.

I thought I’d play with my camera phone while I was up in London, but all I’m doing is pointing and clicking – I’m not really learning how to use it.

One thing I stopped and photographed was this street sign for Whittington Avenue. It’s signs like this which bring home what a historic place London is. We hear the story of Dick Whittington coming to London and becoming the Mayor, and when you see a street sign bearing his name, it brings home the fact that it’s not just a story!

This particular street sign is on one of the streets from which Leadenhall Market is accessed. This street is in fact the Leadenhall Street entrance.
