  • Another brilliant set of Then And Now pictures from MyB&H. How it’s changed! Only the steeple of St Paul’s provides the link. Great work by Jennifer and Tony Mould.

    Editor’s note: Awww – thank you Len. And of course it is also thanks to the Regency Society for allowing us unlimited use of the marvellous James Gray collection.
