Tonight's London Walk. While talking about the Lord Mayor, the Lord Mayor walks past, interrupts me and introduces himself. @londonwalks

It reminded us of our late, great colleague Jean who had a similar run-in with the Lord Mayor in a previous incarnation (the Lord Mayor, like Doctor Who, regenerates regularly). Here's Jean's blog post from 2011, which we posted under the headline The Lord Mayor of London & The Duchess of London Walks…
This from London Walks guide Jean…
"On my Dickens Christmas Carol Walk on Christmas Eve, I'd just got to the bit about "The Lord Mayor in the stronghold of the mighty Mansion House gave orders to his fifty cooks and butlers to keep Christmas as a Lord Mayor's household should....." when who should appear but the Lord Mayor himself. He said he wished he had fifty cooks and butlers, and greeted the walkers. Though you might like the picture. Best wishes, Jean."
