In and Around London... It Was 60 & 160 Years Ago Today

In and Around London... It Was 60 & 160 Years Ago TodayMonday is mute on the London Walks Blog (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides, London Walkers and Facebook friends. Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.
