Lively view of central London from a series of images based on a famous New Yorker cover and providing a humorous view of how Londoners view themselves. In the foreground of the image is a highly detailed look at the Thames, London Bridge, Big Ben, Nelson's Column, and other highlights of central London, all crammed into a small area. Further afield are "The States," Quebec and Canada (separate), the Euro Market, Siberia, and a very mountainous India. High above the center of the image is a Union Jack, showing overarching importance placed on London by this poster.

The present view is one of a large series of images that riffed on the Steinberg concept while substituting other American and worldwide cities. Steinberg's original work has been the subject of almost-countless parodies, including one for the release of Moscow on the Hudson by Columbia Pictures, which resulted in a copyright infringement lawsuit. Each city appears to have been depicted by a different, likely local, artist.
