The Tower of Babel – Shop of the Day No.83

Got to be at the top today, breathe it in!!!! Ah the exclusive air of Bond Street home to the big jewellers in London.  Inextricably linked to the gorgeous, glamorous  Audrey Hepburn.  Amazingly there was no Tiffany’s in London until 1986 when the first exclusive store was opened on Bond Street. It says a lot about London over the last 30 years and the sorts of people that it now attracts

As an aside – an extremely difficult street to photograph due to big chauffeur driven Mercedes or armoured security vans parked in front of all the shops!
