Ben Franklin's House

A couple of times during our travels this past year all of a sudden we are hit with something American out of the clear blue sky.  This was the case during the Sherlock Holmes Walk through London when all of a sudden we came upon the former home of Benjamin Franklin.

He lived at the house for 16 years over his life and it is the last remaining house that Franklin owned.

More than any other city I've been to London has history that is easily accessible...accessible as in turn your head and there is a neat little sign letting you know the history that happened right in front of your face.  

Some of the history might not be that riveting and then a few steps later something jumps out at you that is.  It certainly keeps it on your toes.
