"Charlotte - Centrepoint still seems to be there in all its glorious ugliness, if Google maps is anything to go by. Proving that the place also has a very interesting, if depressing, present."

Bonnie...Dad will be disappointed *LOL*

"Peter Ackroyd's "biography" of London"

This is an incredible book, I own it, Albion : a history of the "English Imagination, and Ackroyd's newest book Thames Sacred River.

"the area just to the east of that junction was once The Rookeries"

The chapter, A London Neighbourhood: the crossroads, about the parish of St. Giles, is one of my favourite parts.

"The invocation of sorrow and loneliness, first embodied in the twelfth-century foundation, has never entirely left this area; throughout its history it has been the haunt of the poor and the outcast. Vagrants even now roam its streets and close to the church there is still a centre for the homeless."

- London. The Biography. by Peter Ackroyd
