find the london place names

I have no idea how I clicked on this picture yesterday which shows a load of London place names in picture form.  Because I don’t know where it came from, I have no idea how many there are supposed to be!

But I know that there are quite a few that we can’t work out.  At the time of poating, we have 50 but think there are about 25 more!

Click on it for the full-size picture!
