Weekly Card Reading 21 June – 27 June

I took this photo, with my smartphone, yesterday. It is near Victoria train station, London.  When I arrived in London, nearly 30 years ago, the place seemed huge but not busy. If I wanted to make a phone call then I had to use a public phone using a phone card. How things have changed. …
