    I think this is regularly seen in episodes of The Bill. In the late 1940’s/early 1950’s I worked in St Helens Place which is just round the corner from here. Was a bit different in those days though! Peter

  • Yes Peter, it has changed quite a bit around that area. I have a couple of shots of St Helen’s somewhere that I’ll get around to uploading one of these days. A beautiful old church now lost in the midst of towering giants. Tony.

    Excellent perspective T. It makes it look like the building could topple over on you. The symmetry is also very appealing here in combination with the geometry of the structures outside design pattern. Great shot. Hugs, 30 S.

  • Thank you S! Not sure about the building toppling over, but I almost did! O30OT
