The Georgians


Bet you didn't expect this as a view of London. Well I guess it would be pretty odd to find a scene like this in London in the 21st century, but this is what we possibly would have seen around 400 years ago.  This is part of the Georgian exhibition at the British Library at present. (this is the free bit) but the paid bit is really worth the fee.  Made me wonder about the  next  Georgian period. (our new heir to the throne).  I guess by the time he is King it will be close to the next century.

Another great British Library exhibit. It's fascinating how quickly things can change - imiagine those Georgians being dropped into our world today, or v.v.

I have a photo of that very same scene! Although, mine is a bit on the wet side. It was raining the day I went there.

It looks quite neat!

I'm with Lulu: what would the Georgian era citizen think of the world today...

I didn't know that they had plastic sheep back then!

A very curious and surreal sight.
