====================================================================== =

The City of London is a geographically small city within Greater London in England. It is the historic core of London around which, along with Southwark and then Westminster, the modern conurbation grew. The City’s boundaries have remained almost constant since the Middle Ages, and hence it is now only a tiny part of the much larger London metropolis. It is often referred to as the City or the Square Mile, as it is just over one square mile (1.12 mile² / 2.90 km²)[1] in area. These terms are also often used as metonyms for the United Kingdom's financial services industry, which is based here.

In the medieval period, the City was the full extent of London. The term London now refers to a much larger conurbation containing both the City of London itself, as well as the 32 'London boroughs', constituting Greater London. The City is today a major business and financial centre, ranking on a par with New York City as the leading centre of global finance;[2] in the 19th Century, the City served as the world's primary business centre.[3] The City has a resident population of under 10,000, whilst it employs 340,000 professional workers, mainly in the financial sector, making the area's transport system extremely busy during peak times.

The City is not one of the 32 London boroughs. It is governed by the City of London Corporation, which has some unusual responsibilities for a local authority, such as being the police authority for the City. It also has responsibilities and ownerships beyond the City's boundaries.

    Using deep of field with the boulding in the background maximizing the hole feeld of view.
    And smart idea to use the people in the picture to get an wave of lifeless to it all.

    Great work, you made my day!
