After breathing the pure serene of the 2,952 trophies in the Pursuit of Perfection exhibition at South London Gallery I toodled along to Brixton, where a juxtaposition of edifices recalled the glories of the trophy exhibition -

St Matthew's church, a "chaste specimen of classical architecture," was one of the "Waterloo churches" built in the early 19th century. The extravagant memorial, at the junction with Effra Road, is to Richard Budd ("of Russell Square"; 1748-1824) and was built in 1825. SirJohn Soane designed the artwork.
