Great Fire Fun

gf pic1st July 2013 – a very enjoyable afternoon taking a group of Japanese visitors through the route of the Great Fire of London.  Tower Hill, tube to Monument, then through the route of the fire to Temple.  It’s funny to reflect that London would lack some of its unique charm if it weren’t for our inability to agree on change: faced with all sorts of fancy designs to rebuild London in the emerging European style with avenues and piazzas we decided to widen the streets a touch, add only a couple of new ones and stick to the random development of streets that make the City what it is!
