The Waste Land...

What I love about London is that it cleans up its act once in a while... the photo above was taken on the South Bank in October 2008. The photo below was taken at the same location several years earlier, in January 2000.
It seems to me the paving stones have not just been cleaned up and replaced around Eliot's poem but the paving stone with the poem itself has been changed. Re-cut but not as well. Shame but not earth shattering. At least verses can find their way under people's feet and not just on the Underground.

Yet another reason to Love London...
