Believe it or not, I took 100 photos of London yesterday, and because of that, I am going to present the city in 3 different parts, the BEST OF, Richmond Row/Woodfield, and Western Fairgrounds/Old East London. I took all these pictures on April 4, 2005, when I was in London, and I am presenting the "BEST" of London here...

Covent Garden Market

John Labatt Centre

Middlesex County Building

"Founding of London" Plaque

Museum London

1st Hussars Museum and Forks of the Thames Park

Thames River

Plaque, hey my town's FAMOUS! Mitchell is mentioned here!

Skyline from the city's nature/bike trails

Children's Museum (I went here a lot when I was a kid, was a neat museum)

Skyline from Wharncliffe Road

Labatt Memorial Park (this was a home to the Detroit farm team back in the 1980s and 1990s)

Drink Nightclub (one of London's best music venues), saw a Billy Talent show there

Harris Park from Riverside Drive

The ugliest building ever built... at least Lucky 24 thinks that... and so do I

Ridout Street Architecture

The famous Eldon House

Nice old houses on Talbot Street, near Talbot Centre

Modernness on Dufferin and Talbot, the building on the left was just completed (condos)

Cathedral Church

DAMN SCHOOL BUSES! The Grand Theatre

London Life Building

Around Victoria Park

Centennial Hall (London's old Performing Arts Center)

Nice homes near downtown

And folks, you're gonna get two great skyline shots...

coming soon... Richmond Row, Historic Woodfield, Western Fairgrounds and Old East London

I noticed that too. Maybe I shouldn't have taken a picture of that, but ironically, it is a bit comical. I don't know if maybe someone's business advertisement needed the letters "O" and "N" on their business logo or sign or whatever and they got desperate enough to take those two letters overnight. Maybe they should just paint the letters on. Or have sensitive beams to detect if one has stolen them or not. :) They should replace them someway, somehow.
mayhaps, I will take some London pics for Trillium Photography, that way, we'll have two sets of them. I mean if Hamilton can have three sets with three different photographers, why not have London with more than one set taken by different photographers, eh? :) I'll do whatever areas of the city I can... I have ways to get to London without a car, lol!

I LOVE the new LawCourt building. Imposing and thank-god, not made of glass.
I think it is a very handsome building. Imposing like a law building should be. Great archetectural piece at the fork of the Thames. Hell of a lot nicer than that ugly blue glass crap of LondonLife.

As far as the pics, thankyou they were great. Any OldSouth ones on the horizon?
btw, I don't like the courthouse that much. It's a ugly concrete box. Although I have seen uglier buildings than that.
