We have an extra #NotesandQuery to solve today. 
Robert in Wandsworth noticed this relief on a partially  demolished building on the corner of Berwick Street and Broadwick Street in Soho.
It say 'Built in 1886', but what do the initials VP and JP stand for ? https://t.co/E9qI2bnM5c

The second #NotesandQuery is Alan's.
After looking up whilst walking along @OxfordStreetW1 he noticed an angry monkey 🐡 looking down on everyone.
Do you know why it's there and who painted it? https://t.co/Xrrl5Lxscx

Time for more mystery solving with #NotesandQueries πŸ€”Sheran wants to know what this is?
Her Uncle once pointed out this 'spy hole' on the top of Queen Anne's Court in Greenwich. Was it a 'Spy Hole', is it connected to The Royal Observatory opposite or neither?
Can you help? https://t.co/5WyptHrZ4C

For our second #NotesandQueries today Brian in Ruislip is wondering if anyone else remembers the Fullers passport. It was developed during the 80s as a loyalty/marketing ploy. Did anyone complete it or still have it?

@RobertElms Rather than being a holder for a flare, it seems more probable that the hoop contained the glass lantern, and the spike may well have been a support for the lamplighter's ladder.  I found this old picture for comparison .. https://t.co/jn5FZ4219h

We're throwing in an extra #Query this morning.
Robin in Shepperton was walking towards St James Square and he passed this unusual piece of wrought iron work. Does it mean anything to anyone? Can you help Robin and the rest of #London find out what it is and what it was used for? https://t.co/WMFaC1tzRX

Our second #NotesandQuery comes from Heidi in Bromley. She remembers a story her dad used to tell her about seeing a #spitfire crash close to Greenwich Park during WWII?  She thinks there is still signs of a crater outside The Rangers House in the park. Does this ring any πŸ””'s https://t.co/rgrf7agxCX
