Handcross has prolly existed a lot longer than Paris and definatly longer than New York, bloody paint is still wet on New York, a Dutch cigarette maker bought it off the indians for a bag full of beads,we took it off him of course,hense the name change from Amsterdam to York, we can't have foreigners owning other bits of the world, that was our job.
Dunno how long Paris has been there, prolly a place with lots of bushes and undergrowth, where the Roman soldiers used to get off their horses and relieve themselves, Paris prolly means " good place for taking a dump" in Roman.
History is facinating.is it not.
