A Wanderer in London – E.V. Lucas, 1906:

When I first came to London, Piccadilly still had its goat. I remember meeting it on the pavement one day in 1902, opposite Hamilton Terrace, and wondering how it got there, and why the people, usually so curious about the unusual, were taking so little notice of such a phenomenon, as it seemed to me. It must have been soon after that it died and, with true London carelessness, was not replaced. London never replaces anything.
