Whimsical Wednesday

A Lightbulb Moment

Every Wednesday I’m posting a photograph which highlights the whimsical nature of London. As a tour guide, I get to see a lot of astonishing things while researching my walks and I will use this blog series as a means of sharing these sights with you.

If you pop into Thomas Neal’s Centre, for example, you will encounter this illuminating chandelier made out of gigantic light bulbs. Now a pit stop for serial shoppers, this refurbished building used to be a warehouse for bananas, cucumbers and … wait for it … books in the past.
