Londons East End: From haven for gangsters to Olympic showcase – World News

Oranges and lemons,
Say the bells of St. Clement’s.  

You owe me five farthings,
Say the bells of St. Martin’s.  

When will you pay me?
Say the bells of Old Bailey.  

When I grow rich,
Say the bells of SHOREDITCH.  

When will that be?
Say the bells of Stepney.  

I do not know,
Says the great bell of Bow.

Cool article about London and some of its history. Says this London boy.
