At some point, people may not remember your name. Although the earth moves on, you remain in some form or another. Whether you remain by a simple monument, or by the lives you change and leave behind. #highgatecemetery #folkmoody @highgatecemetery

“Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book.”

(The colorful Hay’s Galleria. London, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿)
.
| interesting stuff | Hay’s Galleria is a mixed use building situated on the south bank of the River Thames. It is named after its original owner, the merchant Alexander Hay who bought the property in 1651. Back then it was a brewery which was acquired in 1840 by John Humphrey and converted into a wharf and it was known as Hay’s Wharf. During the 19th century it was the main port for ships bringing tea to London. In fact at its height 80% of all London tea imports passed through this wharf. It was largely rebuilt after the Great Fire of Southwark in 1862 and was in use for another century. In the 1960’s due to the adoption of containers for sea transportation, the shipping industry started to move to deeper water ports further down the River Thames and by 1970 the Hay’s Wharf was closed. In the 1980’s with the urban regeneration of the Thames Corridor and London Docklands, the property was acquired by the State of Kuwait and it was rebuilt to house office spaces and shops. Today Hay’s Galleria is known to tourists as a spot for shopping souvenirs, touristic apparel and jewelry.

Today we attended a beautiful Organ concert at the magnificent St. Paul’s Cathedral. The Cathedral is a prominent part of the London skyline with its dome being amongst the highest in the world. Fun fact: St. Paul’s is also where Lady Diana wed Prince Charles 👰🤵

(A pinkish sunset in the business district of Canary Wharf. London, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿)
.
| interesting stuff | Canary Wharf is one of the two main financial centers of the UK along with the City of London. Around 105.000 people work in the area and it is Global or European headquarters for major banks including Barclays, Citigroup, JP Morgan, Morgan Stanley, etc. It used to be one of the busiest docks in the world from 1802 to 1939. The port industry declined and by 1980 all docks have closed. During the 1980s, Michael von Clemm then chairman of Credit Suisse First Boston had the idea to convert Canary Wharf into offices and by 1988 constructions had began. The first buildings completed in 1991 including the One Canada Square which was then the tallest building in the UK and became the symbol of the regeneration of then Docklands. However when it opened, the London commercial property market had collapsed and the developer filed for bankruptcy. In 1995 an international consortium bought the scheme, the new formed company became known as Canary Wharf Group. Today jobs at the area are highly coveted and the estimate average salary is of 100.000 pounds. It is also a cultural hub, about 100 art events takes place in the area during a year. On a side note: the name Canary Wharf comes actually from a dock that was constructed in 1936 prismatic for the fruit trade from the Mediterranean and Canary Islands.

(Looking down the stairs at the iconic department store Fortnum & Mason. London, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿)
.
| interesting stuff | Fortnum & Mason is an upmarket department store in Piccadilly. It was established in 1707 by William Fortnum and Hugh Mason. Fortnum was a footman,  the term for male servant, in the royal household of Queen Anne. The royal family insisted in having new candles every night resulting in many half used or barely used candles. Fortnum saw a opportunity for profit and started selling the candles at the same time he started to run a business as a grocer. He later convinced his landlord, Hugh Mason, to be his associate and Fortnum and Mason was founded as a small shop in St. James Market in 1707. The store increasingly became known for speciality items and ready to eat luxury meals. During the Napoleonic Wars, the shop supplied dried fruit and spices to British officers. It was often called to provide goods for prestigious Court events. In 1952 Canadian W. Garfield Weston acquired the store. Later years has seen the expansion of this iconic store with stores opened in St Pancras station in 2013 and in 2014 in Dubai. .

(A view of The River Thames through a glass window with The Shard rising on the left. London, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿)
.
| interesting stuff | The name of the river is of Brittonic Celtic origin and may have meant “dark”. Several rivers in the UK shares the same word origin such as the rivers Tamar, Tame, Tavy, Teme among others. Two thirds of the drinking water in London comes from the Thames. It has over 200 bridges along its 346 kms and in some areas of the river it is subject to tides as much as the ocean. The city’s waste used to be dumped into the river until when 1858 the stench became so intense that Parliament had to be suspended. This event was known as The Great Stink and it led to the creation of London’s sewer system in 1865, much of which is still in use today. On a darker note, about an average of 1 dead body per week is hauled out of the Thames: some due to accidental deaths and others due to suicides.

(The Shard rising behind office buildings. London, England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿)
.
| interesting stuff | The Shard is the highest building in the United Kingdom with 95 stories and measuring 310 meters in height. It was inaugurated in 2012 and it is 95% owned by the state of Qatar. It was designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, the name “Shard” is derived from the architects description of the building as a “shard of Glass”. It has 11000 glass panels and 44 lifts. The glasses are kept shiny by a team of 6 window cleaners who tackle one side each week and after finishing they start from beginning, so their work is never finished. The floors between the 53rd and 65th houses 10 apartments with a price each between 30 to 50 million pounds. It also houses the Shangri-La Hotel with rooms as pricey as 14.000 pounds a night.
