Sunday 2nd Dec 2012 A walk round

  HOME Columbia Rd Shoreditch 2019

The record of a walk by the gang of four from Shoreditch High Street to Liverpool Street, with rather a lot of Street Art, pity about some of the mindless "tags" spoiling the images! The rain was fine but persistent providing puddles for reflections. 27th August 2014.
