    Very interesting – the smells of Old London. You make them very vivid. Maybe you’ll write about them again and add a few, like unwashed people and the smell after people threw their slops out of the windows and shouted ‘gardez loo (l’eau) – beware of the water (and worse!). Oh and nice smells like baking bread and cakes with spices, or mead.
