You'll believe an embassy can fly

I see the United States is to move its London embassy from Grosvenor Square to Nine Elms in Wandsworth. A significant change: the US embassy has been in Grosvenor Square ever since John Adams was appointed ambassador by George Washington.

Mention in the Daily Telegraph of "the lease arrangement with the Duke of Westminster" , however, reminds me of this post from a few years back (specifically my aside after the 8th clipping).

Anyway, here's an older and more famous Nine Elms landmark hosting what looks like an early visit by the US ambassador. Or is it one of the cast of the Simpsons?
