More of London

I noticed a leaf on the ground and looked up. Yes, they have planted ginkgo trees in London streets:

At lunchtime, to get a walk and some fresh air, I went up to Mornington Crescent to look at the old Carreras cigarette factory:

Butilt 1926-28, architects Marcus Evelyn Collins, O H Collins and Arthur George Porri, and said to be the first building in Britain to use pre-stressed concrete.

Then this evening I walked to Regent Street and could hardly miss the Christmas decorations:

Rather tasteful. Oh, where are the tacky decorations d’antan?
