Out and about

in north London; walking, the past-time of the great man himself.  Click the image for full size and see if you can identify the Dickens characters depicted.

I think I recognise all but one.  From bottom up:  David Copperfield & Wilkins Micawber; Mrs. Gamp; Dombey & Son; Martin Chuzzlewit & Mary; Barnaby Rudge.  Not sure about the one top left.  Please correct me if you know otherwise.

No visit to England would be complete without a meal of fish and chips, soused with malt vinegar; whilst toppled from its throne as national dish (by chicken tikka masala) one tends to grow nostalgic living so long as an expat.  This fine example came from the chippie of my childhood, the Sea Shell of Lisson Grove.
