I love this light over Newhall Street

In 1868, Queen Victoria granted the Society Royal status and this coat of arms which came from the old gallery used to be near the leather fire buckets

and I walked on past this church in St. Paul's Square in
the Jewelry quarter
with an enhanced sense of visual sensuality, and history, and out along Henrietta Street to Camp Hill where the cable cars used to run.
