Recently, Victoria sent me the link to an article written by film critic Roger Ebert about the London he had known in the 1960's. Like us, Ebert had loved London, spent much time there and was fortunate enough to have uncovered many of the City's treasures - hotels lost in time, shops that sold bespoke goods, restaurants that were known for their specialty food and a host of the sort of characters who define London. What a treat this article is and now I'm sharing it with you. The only drawback to the piece is that most of the places and people Ebert wrote about are long gone. How I wish I'd been able to book a room at No. 22 Jermyn Street for our upcoming visit. Sigh.
Here's the link to the article. Enjoy.
