I see a lot of boards that have this pin, but I've never seen it put in context. This is the side view of Harrods. The entrance in the lower right corner is one of the busiest entrances, being so near the tube exit. In 1983 just before Christmas the IRA planted a bomb just outside the entrance. The IRA made a phone call warning of the bomb, but it went off before the site could be cleared. Six people were killed and 90 injured.
My biggest wish in life is to spend Christmas in London. One Christmas Eve as I was getting ready to go to my parents I listened to BBC radio 1 and was having such a ball listening to callers call in telling the DJ's what they were cooking for Christmas Eve dinner and of course the great British pop Christmas tunes. That alone made me want to go even more.
