    博尔街仲裁法院

    Pay wave

    在你的左手边是花街(Floral Street)。 如果你背对它,你会看到一个宏伟的白色建筑。好吧,它曾经是白色,现在已经略带棕色了。 稍稍在建筑物左侧一点,你会看到一个标志写着Bow Street Magistrate's Court 博尔街仲裁法院。

    法庭的设立是为了回应像乔纳森王尔德那样的双重交易,但其实乔纳森是在另外一个法院受审的。英国人意识到,抑制犯罪迫在眉睫,因为当时伦敦已经是犯罪成灾。因此伦敦成立了第一支官方警察部队。 他们被称为Bow Street Runners——博尔街飞侠。他们被赋予了整治伦敦的艰巨任务。 今天的警察部队叫伦敦大都会警察,直到19世纪20年代才成立。

    和刚才的剧院一样,这也不是最初的那个建筑。最初的那个是建于十八世纪40年代。 眼前这个从1881年开始使用,到2006年停止使用。历史上很多非常著名的案子都是在这里审的,比如智利独裁者皮诺切特将军、奥斯卡王尔德在这里因为是同性恋者被判有罪、以及二十世纪初女权运动的领袖潘克赫斯特姐妹。

    现在过马路,到博尔街法院的那一边,然后原路往回走。
