One More Of Regent Street

From the Regent Street web site:
In 1811 Regent Street was designed by the architect John Nash as a compliment to the Prince Regent. He sought to link Carlton House, the home of the Prince Regent, with Regent's Park where the future king was planning to build a new palace.

Few structural or physical changes have been made since the 1920s. Yet there are now many famous fashion and department stores and exciting new international arrivals such as Apple Store, Aquascutum and Lacoste. The street is now home to three large hotels and the food quarter in Heddon Street. Many businesses are located in the offices above and behind the shops.
