These streets

I feel lucky to be able to admire these pretty streets every day on my way to work... Did you know that these streets are where the original 'top shops' were? In the days before electricity, weavers would sit on the top floors of these buildings, getting as much sunlight as possible by which to do their work. This term is where today's famous Topshop fashion retailer took its name from. Cool huh?
