One positive thing to come out of the excursion to Guildhall is that walking through the square I noticed that the LIFFE trader statue is now in the hall. Initially I figured they removed it due to the backlash against the financial industry but walking by the original location it turns out they had to move it because of a huge construction project where it previously stood.

Here’s what the statue looks like from when I saw it years ago in it’s original location across from Cannon Street Station.
Battling some serious jetlag and disappointed by the library documents, I had to smile upon hearing the radio station I stream from Austin play London Homesick Blues this morning
