Thread Name: Is 'Streets of London' a folk song
Subject: RE: Streets of London
Always takes me back to my college days and going down the market at the back of Waterloo Station where an old girl dressed in a ragged old coat tied round with string used to wander about with two very full, but neatly packed, brown paper carrier bags holding all her possessions.

Doesn't the song mention the old woman with carrier bags? I often wonder if she was the inspiration for that verse.
