The cover, the chaos, the hollow sympathy of the architecture, the Tube lines snaking underground. London can swallow you up, in a good way.
― Emma Jane Unsworth.
In the morning mist, hazy and amorous, London was delirious. London squinted as it floated along, milky pink, without caring where it was going.
― Yevgeny Zamyatin
From all the thousands of famous faces in the Mational Portrait Gallery (some of them men), these stood out:
Actress and artist Pauline Boty
Social maven Lady Ottoline Morrell
Writer Beatrix Potter
Painter Natalie Denny
Actress Ellen Terry
Queen Mary I and children
Actually a figure captured in the Hampstead Jazz Lounge of no real renown.
