Here’s another set of photos taken around Soho this weekend, showing the rainy streets of the capital a week before Christmas.
The magnificent former gas lanterns of the Cock Tavern on Margaret Street, a Victorian pub with a wonderfully ornate interior. A long, narrow pub, it serves the usual range of affordable Samuel Smith beers.
Rain reflected off the sett paving on Broadwick Street.
Former Watners boozer, the Blue Posts.
Market stall packs down in Berwick Street.
Police car and pedestrian reflections.
Tourists taking a ride.
The distinctive half-timbered gardener’s hut in Soho Square.
A little known fact is that the Grade II listed mock-Tudor cottage also houses an emergency fire escape exit for a WW2 200 sq ft brick and concrete shell shelter in its centre. [—]
