The other pub in El Grecos fantastic pictures is the Fox & Anchor in Chartershouse St, Smithfield, also well worth a visit, both for the beer and architecture
Yes. I know. (As El Greco noted.)

These are great photos. I love the re-built George.

These are lovely photos. Its nice to see the lesser known nooks and crannies of London, the city has some impressive architecture.

Where is this charming doorway? I've never seen it before.
