An Alphabet of Greenwich – E

So we reach a rather trickier letter than one might at first think.

It’s a vowel – it should be easy – but if you cut out anything starting with the words “East” (let’s use the pic above as representing all ‘East Greenwich’s…) it starts getting tricky.

There are always people of course, but should this one be under ‘J’

or this one be under ‘Q’ or even ‘A’?

Ah well, there’s always

and, following in the great tradition of RGT, there never needs to be a relevant reason to include

    Eltham Palace – Greenwich’s other Tudor royal palace.

    And while you don’t want ‘East Greenwich This’ and ‘East Greenwich That’, what about “East” itself? Surely the home to the meridian confers East-ness on half the globe.

    JR, clearly you need to be a Texan Oil man to afford cake at the Cutty Sark :-)

    How about “expensive”
