The Seven Noses of Soho were created by artist Rick Buckley in 1997. Apparently he originally hid around 35, but only seven (some people say 10) survive. Lots of myths have sprung up around the noses - for instance, many people mistakenly believe that the nose inside the Admiralty Arch was put there to mock Napoleon. Another myth states that if you find all seven you’ll be ‘wealthy forever more’.
Marathon (1968) Marathon came to the UK courtesy of Forrest Mars Sr, estranged from the family business in the States, but free to adapt the recipes for European tastes.
