the traditional home of the British press

For a very long time Britain's main newspapers were based in Fleet Street.  But in the 1980s they began moving out and the last major name, Reuters, left in 2005.

This 1960s view has a couple of London icons in it, as well as an outlet of newsagent W.H. Smith on the left.

Lovely array of old buildings, the decker sets the scene with those long shadows making it a very rich photo.
