On our trip to London this summer, we visited King's Cross train station, which just happens to have a sign for Platform 9 3/4. It's on a random wall out in the station, not between Platforms 9 and 10. When I visited London eight years ago, it was on a wall by the train tracks, and there was no one around. Now, there is a line to have your picture taken by a professional photographer, who poses you with a scarf (you get to pick your house) running with the trolley halfway through the wall. We didn't wait in line for the official (and I'm sure, expensive) picture. We just snatched our own when we could.

Wow, they charge now? That's just not right - but I guess someone's make a bundle! Loved your clandestine pics!

I didn't know they'd put up a sign there - I shall go hunting when I visit my Younger Daughter, who is moving to London.

Awesome! If I make it to London, I'll be putting this on my to-see list :)

My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
