A view of St. Pauls Catheval & a more modern building from the Thames.
A1 Aldersgate Street
Old Start of the A4 & A40
The A4 & A40 used to start in the City of London. Due to the IRA bombing campian in the late 1960's-early 90's, the roads around bank were declasfided and now are unnumbered.

London Wall Looking east on a quiet day. The car looks like an Austin Cambridge.
B500 - west end (from pavement level)
Not such a good vantage point, but with more time to compose the shot! One of the gatehouses of Ely Place can be seen in this view. The taxi behind the bus is at the Farringdon Street junction. Traffic congestion in this street is much worse since the City of London closed off Shoe Lane/St Bride Street - but this is a Camden street, so perhaps the City doesn't mind! Note that of the eleven vehicles in this queue, only one is liable for the congestion charge!

London- four bridges across the Thames Looking upstream from Tower Bridge, we see firstly London Bridge, then the Cannon Street rail bridge, then the Millennium footbridge and finally Blackfriars Bridge (the rail bridge at Blackfriars obscuring the road bridge just beyond). These are the only bridges that cross into the boundaries of the City of London (on the northern bank, right).

Watling Street The narrow Watling Street is one of the few roads in the City of London not to have been widened after the Great fire of London and has kept its medieval width.
Blackfriars bridges High tide on the Thames between the Blackfriars road (on the left) and rail bridges. Looking towards the north bank.
Castle Baynard Street
Junction of Cheapside and Wood Street It is unusual to see people strolling in the road within the City of London, even on a Saturday but these people are quite safe. It is closed for a Mediaeval Market- just one of a number of events organised as part of the 2008 London Festival of Architecture.
