The bad news is sex isn’t selling as well as it used to. In Soho that is. Elsewhere of course the world’s oldest profession has discovered the internet as have a billion pimply youths and sad old men whose mackintoshes are now in God’s own junkyard.
But while there’s nothing to regret about the loss of drug dealing, money laundering and people trafficking that were the reality of Soho in its heyday as the place in Britain you had to go to see a supremely bored lady take her clothes off while clearly her mind was elsewhere or perhaps find temporary solace in one of the area’s many working girls the challenge for those of us who have a significant interest in the fabric of Soho is to maintain the excitement, the edge and yes, the thrill of being in a unique part not just of London but arguably of Europe.
Join Soho Estate Chairman Steve Norris for an insightful evening as we continue our Great Estates series.
