Farewell From The #London Nightly #Photoblog – Anything Can Happen on a London Walks Tour!

THE LAST ONE!

Adam writes…

Throughout August 2016 in The London Nightly Photoblog slot I've posted one last look at London before before we all turn in.

31 pics over 31 days – buses, signs, pubs, parks, people, places, birds, street art & statues. I hope you have enjoyed them.

Thanks to everyone who reads The Daily Constitutional, and to all who join us on our London Walks tours.

We'll see you OUT THERE again tomorrow.

Nighty nite.


P.S The London Nightly Photoblog will return in February 2017!

As the school holidays draw to a close in the UK, here's a visit from the ice cream man Thomas Wall, Jermyn Street…





From Aleister Crowley to Beau Brummell via Isaac Newton and crooner Al Bowly, the cast of Jermyn Street characters is a rich one indeed.

Jermyn Street has many tales to tell. And not just the shirt tails of the master shirt makers for which the street is so famed. Nor are cufflinks the only links in this neck of the woods.

Thomas Wall was born in Jermyn Street in 1846 – born into the Wall dynasty, renowned in this country for their sausages. Indeed their British fame is such that the plaque simply states the name and dates, in the assumption that we will already know to whom it is dedicated.

Still going strong, Wall’s once held royal warrants from Queen Victoria, King Edward VII and George V.

It was Thomas Wall who came up with the solution to the companies annual summer slump – a period when sales of pies and sausages traditionally declines. the solution? To branch out into the world of ice cream.
