Today I present these handsome Players Cigarette Cards from the Celebrated Gateways series published in 1907. As we contemplate the going-out of the old year and the coming-in of the new, they give me the perfect opportunity to send you my wishes for your happiness in 2023.

    A Happy New Year to the Gentle Author too, who helps me keep in touch with my London roots! This includes ‘Ludgate’ Hill. Am I right in thinking that there is now a reproduction of The Ludgate to the north of St Paul’s Cathedral where, in my time in the 1960s, there was the horrific, then ultra-modern, ‘Paternoster Square’?
