Today we took a short walk from Liverpool Street Station, walked along London Wall and climbed the stairs to the walkways above the roads below. We went to visit the Museum of London. I am ashamed to say that despite being a Londoner I never knew it existed until recently.
Well, what a wonderful experience! The museum shows the history of London pre Roman times to the present day. I won't spoil your enjoyment of visiting by giving too much away here but it is amazing to think that London was once a forest!
Above is a portion of the 'original' London Wall. I took this photo from the inside of the museum looking out where there was loads of facts written up about it that I failed to take note of!
A reconstruction of a Roman living room. The Mosaic floor and the artefact's around are original.
A Roman kitchen. Doesn't look too bad does it?
Well here is where I jump century's and bring you to the 1920's. I was most taken with this Selfridges lift.
Wouldn't you feel so glamorous riding in this?
Look how beautiful the lift doors are with the golden light shining through.
Just gorgeous and tasteful.
Isn't it a shame that we don't have lifts like these nowadays?
