The London Stone. Popular legends include the Stone being the remains of an ancient stone circle that is alleged to have stood on Ludgate Hill, & even the stone from which Arthur withdrew the legendary Sword in the Stone. The earliest reference to the Stone is in a book belonging to Æthelstan, King of England in the early 10th century. In the book, some places are said to be "near unto London stone". It was already a landmark in 1198 when it was referred to on maps as Lonenstane or Londenstane.

Ms. Esther Jones aka Baby Esther was the real inspiration for Betty Boop. The African-American singer and entertainer of the late 1920s performed regularly at The Cotton Club in Harlem. Her singing trademark was…”boop oop a doop, “in a babyish voice. Singer Helen Kane purportedly saw Baby’s act in 1928 and “adopted” her style in her hit song “I Wanna Be Loved By You.” Ms. Jones’ singing style, along with Ms. Kane’s hit song, went on to become the inspiration for Max Fleischer’s “BETTY BOOP.”
