And here it is. The only noticeable damage to any stonework that I could find, resulting from the July 7 attacks. It's to the right of the BMA sign. If you look closely (click on the image) you can also see evidence that this wall has been washed. Reports on the day of the terrorist attacks say that the entire front of the BMA building was splashed with blood.

What is remarkable, in a way, is that already people are walking past this site of mass murder like it's just another bit of London pavement. And why not. Because it is just another bit of London pavement, albeit one that shows one of the many scars of this strange, brutal, callous, extraordinary city.
