The Strand

In London this is an A road, not what you'd expect in America I'll bet. However the Strand has been an  important route since Roman times and the main road between the City of London and the Palace of Westminster since medievial times.  It has inspired, songs, books and films.  Think Jethro Tull in requiem, Virginia Woolf in Mrs Dalloway and C S Lewis in Chronicles of Narnia for starters.

Historic street. Did the shore not reach there also?

I can relate to all those references especially the C.S. Lewis one.

Wonderful shot down the street. Am working for a short while in London, not far from here. I'm impressed you caught it looking rather quiet!

It is quite a grand street.
