Curiosities of London part 2: street creatures & more.
London is like a free open-air museum and art gallery combined – when you know where to look.
This talk is another about the unusual, quirky or even odd things you can find on the streets of London, revealing how Doctor Snow stopped a Cholera pandemic, also where to find working gaslights, some quadriga and a statue of a queen who was “very tall, in appearance most terrifying, having a great mass of the tawniest hair which fell to her hips”.

Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
