London...circa 1949

Shaftesbury Avenue from Piccadilly Circus, in the West End of London, c. 1949. The Circus, a famous traffic intersection and public area in the City of Westminster, was built in 1819 to connect Regent Street to the major shopping street of Piccadilly. It's status as a major traffic intersection has made it busy meeting place and tourist attraction in it's own right. (Photo credit: Chalmers Butterfield).
