We spent most of Sunday wandering around London taking photos for a treasure hunt I had signed us us for a few weeks back. I’ll elaborate more tomorrow, for now here are some of the photos we took and the clues that led us to take each image.
Clue 1: He invented the electric motor and the means to harness electricity but has been static since 1872.
Clue 2: Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s innards once housed a great spider.
Clue 3: Borough Market: still providing daily bread for the Woodstock generation.
Clue 4: Leo Szilard conceived “neutron chain reactions” whilst waiting for the lights to change on this street. The resident hairdresses are still in the dark.
Clue 5: I spy with my solar eye a ski jump on the Victoria line.
Clue 6: Sir Charles Barry designed Trafalgar Square. Find his seat of power.
Clue 7: London’s central artery stretches over 200 miles and was once the home to numerous ice fairs.
Clue 9: Find E=mc2‘s doppelgÃ¤nger.
