London - Carnaby Street (1968)

"Swinging England" was the fad in 1968. Carnaby Street had shops with "mod" clothing and other popular items. It still does.

This is my most viewed photo, with over 6,300 views in February…

Possibly the very best location to begin a literary excursion is to visit Westminster Abbey. Enter and head towards the south transept. Here, you will find the area called the Poet's Corner.
