Jeff,

Thanks for pointing out the London panorama.  I played with it a couple of times.  I used the map to help me locate a few old haunts like the British Museum and University of London.  Some areas have had significant new construction.

Jeff,
Don't be taken in by his air of sophistication.
He was searching for the Soho section, and a certain street corner.   Cheesy Grin Smiley

I could not find Soho. Smiley   I also spent ages - about an hour - looking for Center Point only to find that the camera was on top of Center Point. Embarrassed

You're right.  I forgot.

What do 28 Dean Street, Soho, Highgate Cemetery, and the British Museum Reading Room seat G7 have in common?

In Highgate Cemetery just across the path is Herbert Spencer--how ironic?

Soho?

Click on the map. Then click on the + sign (zoom in)  a few times and you will see a neat square.

The direction from Centre Point is WWS.

It's just a block or so south of Oxford St. and west of Charing Cross Rd.

Also, you will see a red dot on St. Giles High Street.  I think Centre Point is right there.

Yes, I used to visit Soho weekly in the 70,s  you could get anything there Smiley

There was even a tool shop  Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

I was building a wooden boat, and they stocked such things as register chisels and bare foot ship augers, unobtainable elsewhere in the country.

Karl Marx!

It is ironic that Herbert Spencer (The Social Darwinist) is buried right across from Karl Marx.

Fantastic panorama, you get strange effects with moving people near the joins. This tourist seems to have lost a leg and there is a head loose on the pavement.
