The Lord Mayor's Show
On Saturday, Mrs Ham and I went to watch the Lord Mayor's Show, which has been a part of London's life for hundreds of years. This show is in stark contrast to the slick and glitzy Americanised New Year's Day Parade and seems to embody that spirit of enthusiastic amateurism that seems so British.
Read about the history of the Lord Mayor and the show on those links. I have posted some short video clips here (a new blog testing "blogger Beta" - I will post some of the 300+ photos I took as time goes by).
