London's Best

Newer Older

Almost all iconic London landmarks in a single frame. 1 St Paul's, 2 churches, 2 skyscrapers and a routemaster...

It was quite surprising to see a Routemaster in service.
From wikipedia article:
The AEC Routemaster is a model of double-decker bus that was unveiled in 1954. It was introduced in London on 8 February 1956 and has become one of the famous icons of London. It is still in service on two heritage routes in central London.
Route 15 is one of those two routes.

    Great line of sight and seizure of moment. But isn't that St Mary le Bow church and not St Faith's? St Faith's under St Paul's was demolished when the old cathedral was extended eastwards in 1256. The parishioners of St Faith's were then given space to worship in the crypt under the choir of St Paul's.

    That does look like St Mary Le Bow.

    Think the confusion has arisen because the church in the foreground is St Augustine-with-St Faith, but when I said that earlier it was taken as meaning the two separate churches.
