A belated thanks to everyone who advised me when I was planning my trip
to London in search of TSE, particularly to Marcia Karp. If not for her,
I would have never met the knowledgeable, generous and warm Jim McCue in
whose company I spent a few truly deligtful hours (including staring
together at "sweet Thames" that DID, at least on that occasion, bear
"empty bottles, sandwich papers [..] cigarette ends" and the like).
Until that meeting I was totally oblivious of the fact that TSE had
written a short story entitled Eeldrop & Appleplex that apparently was
first published in The Little Review (May and September 1917) but am now
the proud owner of its copy (Foundling Press 1992).
While I was not on a mission to visit all the places mentioned in TWL
and elsewhere, I did spend a few quiet moments at St Mary Woolnoth, a
very cozy and elegant little church that I stumbled upon on my way to
London Bridge. As I was walking across, I also saw a little church
hugging the side of an office building and got to wondering whether it
might possibly be St Magnus Martyr with its "inexplicable splendour".
Jim did not know its exact location but, judging by the map, what I took
a picture of might be it. I don't know the list's policy regarding
picture attachments, but if somebody knows of thinks he/she knows what
St Magnus Martyr looks like, please contact me off-list and I will send
you the picture I took and maybe you can help me identify it.
