    I discovered your site via a Google search and find it very interesting. So much going on around me and I never knew the half of it.

    I am a photographer in London and have an interest in architecture amongst other things. Please feel free to link to any of my images if it assists in telling your story.

    Please keep updating your blog, there’s more news here than in the LFP at times.

    Dear Georgina,

    WordPress is free to use to create blogs. It is authored by the two of us; Jr.UrbanDesigner, and nick; and it costs nothing to run.

    This site surprised me…. Good job.
    I just came back from Toronto and noticed how TO is trying to gentrify and urbanize former commercial districts. So far I am not impressed – the density issues will ultimately collapse the viability of those areas.
    However, we here in London have a very different set of circumstances. We can learn from TO in many ways, by first clearing out the grunge on Dundas, moving certain public services out of the immediate downtown, we can then start rebuilding and venture into new areas, re-attract the citizenry that wants to be downtown and care for downtown.
