Alphabet of Greenwich (S)

Stephen points out that we haven’t had an Alphabet of Greenwich since the May Bank Holiday so it’s about time we had another.

I guess all the ‘Saints’ churches count – or do they? How about all the ‘Schools of…’ and various Societies?

I don’t have photos of Sabo the newsagent, Squeeze or Straightsmouth But who needs that when you have a picture of the Straightsmouth Stink Pipe?

But over to you.

‘S’ should be a pretty easy one, shouldn’t it?

The floor is open…
