London photos part 1....



Above shows the lights on Regent Street and Carnaby, and then my first day of shopping bags... ;)


 Mailed some postcards on Saturday morning, does anyone know what "franked mail"  means? The Penn Club south of Russell Square, and I love staying there. outside of the Dickens Museum, a photo of a room done up for Christmas there.


above shows a note they had in the Dickens museum which I got a kick out of.  3 books I purchased at the Persophone Bookstore, and then a photo of a Day's March store that I exchanged shirt jacket for a better one.



above shows photos of the Liberty department store, photo of inside Mina Lima store and the window display for their illustrated book of Alice in Wonderland, which I won a copy. :) the last photo is the program for the concert at Cadogan Hall Saturday night.

Sloane Square and next shows the inside of Cadogan Hall which used to be a church and is now used for shows etc...

"Franked mail" means that the letter does not have a real stamp but has a machine printed stamp, used by businesses. "Franked" goes back to the time when letters which bore the signature of a member of the House of Lords or the House of Commons could be mailed free and not paid for by the recipient as was the system prior to the creation of the Penny Post.
