Last week on Londonist in numbers, translated into pictures...
175,000 ducks in the Great British Duck Race
£800,000.00 in estimated pay-as-you-go emissions fees from motorists for Richmond council
£16.50 to get into Buckingham Palace according to our man with a pram
7 years of inaction for the old Eurostar platforms at Waterloo
£335.00 fine avoided by crowbar wielding Croydon mother reclaiming her car from clampers
175,000 + £800,000.00 ÷ £16.50 ÷ 7 + £335.00 = 8,776 which is a bus stop on a bus lane according to dartar in the Londonist Flickr pool.
This Week In London’s History
Random London Quote Of The Week
The way was long and weary,
But gallantly they strode,
A country lad and lassie,
Along the heavy road!
The night was dark and stormy,
But blithe of heart were they,
For shining in the distance,
The lights of London lay!
O gleaming lights of London,
That gem of the city’s crown,
What fortunes be within you,
O Lights of London Town!
George Robert Sims, Lights of London
