Kenneth Williams used to live in Great Portland Street. On one occasion, back in 73 I was walking home from school with a classmate, the man himself was walking towards us, it was in Devonshire Street, just outside The Turkish Embassy. He obviously had noticed we'd recognised him, adopted a crouching posture and proceeded to pull comical faces. It really was like a scene from a Carry On film.
After twenty five + years working in London I'd imagine you're a bit of a walking A to Z too!
Not sure about being 'a bit of a walking A to Z' Westender. Those twenty-five years working in London were mostly spent in a deadline-driven industry, invariably meaning many hours at a computer keyboard to meet those deadlines.
Also mostly that was permanent night shifts too – unfortunately not much chance to see London as people usually see and remember the place!
