138 New Bond Street W1
New Bond Street seems to have gone all nautical at one time. This splendid vessel looks like a 3rd or 4th rate ship of Nelson's time. She is portrayed as realistically as possible given the limitations of the medium, but there is no indication of which ship is portrayed. It looks a bit out of place on this late 20th century shop - was it transferred from the previous building?
