The Senate and the People of Rome - in London
More in the spirit of continuing the Museum of London Londinum through a lens than promoting this restaurant in Whitehall (Called SPQR, but which I don't think I'd be seen dead in, to be frank) I bring you another Roman Connection. The Invisible Man (a cyclist after my own heart) has an interesting take on cycle lanes, too.
SPQR has interesting connotations, I particularly like the Spanish backronym "San Pedro Quiere Rosquillas" - Saint Peter wants donuts - used to remember the order of the SPQR letters.
The exhibition looks at the parallels between modern and Roman London.It opens in June and features a map that will be made up of images showing Roman influences in London today. They are encouraging photographers to submit their photos and hoping it becomes a really fun, visual and engaging insight into the Roman legacy in modern London. Details of how to submit photos via email or Flickr are on http://www.flickr.com/groups/OL2012/pool/map
