Yes, I know -- but as I said, I only glimpsed what may be St MM from
London Bridge and as I was running late for and appointment it was too
late to retrace my steps and examine the splendour.
 
Quite off topic -- for years I have been wondering why westerners tend
to assume that I write my name with a small initial letter.  Do they
assume that it's one of those weird and exotic East European practices
quite unheard of in the West? So let me re-introduce myself at least to
this --
 
my name is ieva lesinska.

The inexplicable splendour is inside the church, Leva.

	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.
