Up and down the City Road
In and out the Eagle
That's the way the money goes
Pop goes the weasel.
Generations of children have sung about the City Road but today most people think of it as part of London's Inner Ring Road. In this two hour walk, we will be looking at the history of City Road and the buildings in the streets both sides, and telling the stories of people who have lived near it. Some of the things Rob Smith will talk about include:
-The office that counted telegraph poles;
-A building that made gin that now connects London to the world;
-The world’s oldest eye hospital;
-And of course the famous Eagle from the nursery rhyme.
