This is the view from the balcony tonight - not sure if you can tell from the photo, but the pub across the road is almost obscured by fog. We've had a few foggy evenings and mornings lately, but today it didn't entirely lift all day.
I guess it's all the Dickens adaptations on TV in time for XmasTM making London go all Victorian. Or maybe it's 'cause they've reopened the workhouses.*
