The days of El Vino

On the walk from Millennium Bridge

On Tuesday I walked from St Paul's to Chancery Lane and was interested to see history as I strolled,  first was this inscription.

It seems that the Worshipful Company of Upholders was a guild setting standards in upholstery which continues to this day.

Here's a photograph of  people taking a photograph nearby- the iconic view of St Paul's will be behind them.
Smile please

As I walked further I reached Fleet Street once the home of the UK press and what more important building for many years than El Vino - here's a story about Sexual politics in the 1980s that goes with the demise of the area (perhaps) and an article from a revisit more recently.

The El Vino bar  casts a  shadow and houses some ghosts perhaps?
