Covering the start of annual Lord Mayor's Walk from the Whittington Stone at the bottom of Highgate Hill to Mansion House in the City, or in my case from the Whittington Stone to the top of Holloway Road, about 100 yards. Mayors from all the London boroughs dressed in their robes and finery join the Lord Mayor of the City of London in this ceremonial 5 mile schlep following the fabled route of one Mr Dick Whittington the first Lord Mayor who reportedly reached the spot at the bottom of Highgate Hill as he was leaving the capital before hearing the words "turn again Whittington Lord Mayor of London", and that was when he walked all the way back to the City, eventually becoming the first Lord Mayor.
After I'd taken some photos and was leaving, a small child at the bus stop caught sight of the be-robed and fancy hatted procession along the opposite pavement and said "ooh look Mummy, Pirates!"
Mayors cross the road by Archway Tower.
