The spoilsports at London Bridge have now put up blue boards to cover up the construction work so I will not be able to take any more photos of the monumental work that is going on.

Sad to see the new McDonald’s at Cambridge Circus is open, and all trace of the old Leon de Bruxelles is gone. Though Leon was always empty and the new McDonald’s of course was doing roaring business, so you cannot be surprised can you. This article explains why the end of Leon was inevitable.

I love being around Cambridge Circus as it is where the secret service is based in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Smiley’s People. Though the building is actually thought to be at 90 Charing Cross Road just a bit north of the junction itself. These two excellent pages go into more detail.
