    There are some mental ones of Doha and Dubai in there too.

    It makes me very nostalgic. I love Greenwich. My mother had a friend who lived in Gloucester Circus, so it was the second place in London I ever visited.

    I worked around this area between 09 and 11. Most of the big ones were up by then, I think. New ones under construction all the time, of course.

    One Canada Sq went up in 1991 and was on its own for years. The HSBC and Citigroup towers were still being constructed when I moved to London in 2000, glistening vertical building sites that shimmered on the horizon.

    Love those pics. It's disorienting how cities change. A friend lived in Canada Water in 99ish, and afair, 'canary wharf' was still mainly used to refer to the tower, not the district. Total difference from 6/7 years later when I used to go there for work. Opening of the jubiele line changed everything, says here that was 99 too

    Greenwich was the only part of London I knew as a kid, and I don't think I've been back since.

    Love those pics. It's disorienting how cities change. A friend lived in Canada Water in 99ish, and it felt like a weirdly cut-off area; afair, 'canary wharf' was still mainly used to refer to the tower, not the district. Total difference from 6/7 years later when I used to go there for work.

    Greenwich the centre of time. Always blows my mind.

    I first came to London in 1999 but as a student at UCL I had little reason ever to go near Greenwich or the Isle of Dogs, until a decade later when I was working as a junior sub-wonk in the civil service down at Crossharbour. One of my abiding memories of the place is from about this time of year, 2009 or 2010, when I walked up to the shopping precinct beneath Canada Square and noticed that not all of the baubles on the big Christmas tree were actually baubles. Some were discs of card with a printed text on them!

    I crept closer, eager to learn what message of seasonal goodwill was being passively broadcast to the thronging shoppers.

    It was "This area is under 24 hour CCTV surveillance".
