St Pauls



Another grainy picture from my previous film based existence. London would have to be one of my favourite cities in this world and the sky line is amazing. Try as he might Mr Hitler just couldn't really hurt London, for which I am very thankful.

St Paul's Cathedral became famous in 1981 for the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Di. It is a beautiful Sir Christopher Wren designed church, but for my money you are better off going to Westminster Abbey where you can see so much more of the History of England and Britain.

Double decker buses, a world famous London symbol, have been phased out and replaced with boring buses instead. There are still double deckers for tourists, but it's just not the same.

San Nakji for President!

Very nice picture.

And the history of England is a bloody one, isn't it?

What a lovely picture. You know how much I love pictures of churches. This is great!

I've seen pics of Westminster Abbey as well, and it is really pretty too!

St Paul, MN has a replica of the cathederal and it is beautiful indeed. It's a great thing to see everyday on my way to work, that and the state Capital.

We still have double deckers (loads of them), but (other than a few tourist routes) not the old Routemaster buses with a conductor and the open bit at the back. The Da Vinci Code finale takes place in Westminster Abbey but the authorities refused to allow access for the film.

London always seems like it would be a fascinating place to visit.

Yep, the double deckers are gone I hear, but time marches forward!
