This is a collage of the small bronze statues that surround the base of the larger work "The Meeting Place" by Paul Day, the sculptor, situated at St Pancras station in London.

The bronze relief features a variety of scenes depicting life on the railways, including images of soldiers going to war and emergency workers dealing with the 7/7 bombings. Day the sculptor said " “It is about daily life – about the hopes and fears, the loves, the joys, the loss and tragedy that are bubbling along together in human life".

These entertainers have dressed up in an amusing way to entertain the crowds and collect some money from visitors to the south bank of the Thames, along from the London Eye.

Colourful shop displays on and in the vicinity of Tottenham Court Road.
