What's in a name?

Time for another layout. One thing I love about England is the place names and of course there are lots of interesting names on offer in London. Here is a small selection.  What about 'Cloth Fair', a street in the City of London where, in medieval times, merchants gathered to buy and sell material during the Bartholomew Fair.  Or 'Little Britain' which used to be the name of the district around this area and was mentioned in Charles Dickens' novel Great Expectations as the location of Jaggers' office.
