Shot with Olympus E510
It is an elegant doorway, but what sets it apart is the lo-o-o-ng tower of brass name plaques which provide the hint that this is Harley Street, the number one street for the medical profession in London and England, possibly the most famous in the world. This elegant Georgian street became the centre for the medical profession in the mid 19th century, mostly because of its placement near the train stations serving the North and West, that brought the moneyed and sick gentry from the provinces.
