Piccadilly Circus 2006-2014

A picture at Piccadilly Circus, London, every year since 2006. Traditionally the advertising signs were lit by neon lamps, but computer screens slowly replaced the neon between the years 1998 and 2011 – Coca Cola the first to switch, Sanyo the last. This sees the last two old neon signs (TDK and Sanyo) bite the dust along with a host of other changes.

Pictures taken on these days from top left:
30th September 2006
20th June 2007 (modified Budweiser sign)
14th January 2008 (extra LED sign)
12th March 2009 (new McDonalds sign, Barclays replaces Burger King)
17th April 2010 (new Boots frontage, TDK being renovated)
17th January 2011 (new TDK sign)
5th January 2012 (Hyundai replaces Sanyo, new Samsung sign)
25th August 2013 (major construction work, Gap closed)
20th January 2014 (new One Piccadilly sign)
