...the other evening, on the way to a talk about the Jerwood Drawing Prize (interesting exhibition, on in London till 25 October, then travelling to Cardiff, Aberdeen, Cheltenham, Cambridge, Bideford). Around King's Cross, you can see the before-and-after as rejuvenation takes hold -Jolly scaffolding poles on the way to the bus stop. Not somewhere I catch the bus very often ... a chance to look around with "new eyes" -
A familiar sight, but one I haven't seen for quite a few years, certainly not from the front seat at the top of the bus - the back of the lawyers' chambers on Gray's Inn Road, built in the 18th century -
And as you get to High Holborn, this half-timbered survival - Staple Inn, built in the 1580s - the last surviving Inn of Chancery -
So quaint, so British!
