Only a matter of days after I had visited the Paddington Bear at Norfolk Square close to Paddington station (photo, lower right), I learned that his creator, Michael Bond had passed away at 91 years of age (June 28th, 2017). Bond began the Paddington Bear series of children's books decades ago and they have been translated into many languages. Paddington's adventures and travels have delighted generations not only of children the world over.
