Time Travel Is Possible

Although I hide it well, I have been a little obsessed with London for decades. I don’t know why, maybe it was my love for British Invasion music from the 60s or a childhood crush on Marianne Faithfull . Who knows, but it all culminated in a travel guidebook that I wrote way back in the early 80s called London for Free.¬†Sadly, the book is long out of print, however my fascination with all things London continues. So, it will come as no surprise that I love the animated video below. Ollie Bye has created the animated time lapse of the growth of London from a small Roman town in 47 ACE to the largest city in the world (during the Victorian era) to the massive, sprawling city it is today. Trust me, it’s neat.
