      Awesome capture! I was in London in '82 and this stayed in my memory more than anything.

      I've just noticed a complete prejudice on my part.

      I've been imagining the preacher's voice with an American accent, despite the fact that this is in London. Funny how stereotypes can be so powerful.

      JTrandall1 thats right. most of my photos are geo tagged (geographically tagged eg placed on a map) to see where this image is on the map click on the "map" link in the right hand column of this page under "Additional Information"

      DarkDaze Photography thats a crazy little story

      Superb!

      They have one here in Toronto but no one ever uses it.

      @ Mute: Ours is a booth that records messages that are shown on television, while this one is an outdoor, simultaneous free-for-all. People aren't using the booth at MuchMusic so much anymore?

      TofuQueen the both idea is a bit lame it sounds like its for people who don't know how to upload to youtube. its all about seeing the nutters in the flesh!

      TofuQueen, there is actually a 'speakers corner' spot near the Winston Churchill statue at Nathan Phillip's Square. I've never seen anyone using it though, unlike the ones in London. I figure Canadians are just too nice :)

      From the City website:
      "A speakers corner podium is located at the south west corner of Nathan Phillips Square, just east of the Winston Churchill statue (moved in 2004 from it's original location in front of the statue)."

      wow...I so didn't know that! Then again, I haven't been home for a while. I'll swing by when I'm' next in town. Yeah, we're probably too nice or just to chillaxed about life. Not enough pent-up angst :)

      @ lomokev: Yeah, nothing beats nutters in the flesh!
