Step Back in Time

Shot with Olympus E520
If you read Victorian novels about London, you will have built an image of a city of narrow, huddled, alleyways. You may have thought that they've been swept away, apart from the odd one here or there, but behind Cornhill there remains a maze of tiny streets and alleys, pedestrianised now, that you would miss if you weren't looking for them. Worth a meander if you haven't done so before, I felt this antique treatment gave the right feel to the picture.

In this shot is the Jamaica Wine House, which stands on the site of London's first coffee house (not the Dutch kind!!) opened by Pasqua Rosee in 1652 - twenty years before he opened the first one in Paris.
