London Beneath your Feet

Shot with Olympus E510
If you come out of the alleyway with the schoolchildren (from New Year's Eve) you will find yourself next to a recently created space - the Duke of York's Square. Embedded in the pavement is a reproduction of what I guess must be an 18th century map of the Kings Road, although curiously it isn't marked as the King's Road (which is what it was - the King's private road until 1830). Anyone have any more detailed info?

I find it fascinating that it attracts so little attention - yet call it art and people will flock. While you are contemplating it (and its fascinating detail like "Bloody Bridge"), you can also have some of London's best ice cream.

A good idea. I like the photo of it and the words you wrote about it.
