Victoria Station, London

On our first visit to London in 1991, we arrived at Victoria Station via train from Gatwick. We took a black cab to Eaton House at 125 Ebury Street just a few blocks away. It is said that Mozart composed his first symphony here. I'm not sure about that.

I remember that when the black cab arrived at Eaton House, the owner was waiting outside. As the 5 of us piled out of the cab with our huge suitcases, he asked if it was our first visit to Europe. We replied that it was but how did he know. He said that he could tell by the size of our suitcases!
