Great, you should send them a copy. Nice to see one place that hasn't changed too much.

That Picadilly Circus one is very cool. Does anyone know was it (water fountain) covered up because it was a landmark recognisable from the air or was it part of an air raid shelter ?

Its a memorial water fountain "Eros" covered up to protect it from bomb damage.
