London Bits and Pieces.

London Bits and Pieces.

Postby Pen Pusher on Sat 31 Mar 2018, 2:09 pm

With a bit of spare time on my hands, recovering from a bout of man flu and not going anywhere due to the wet Easter weather, I had a trawl through my London photos from visits so far this year and picked out a few images that didn’t make the original cut as they say.

‘Dogman and Rabbitgirl with Coffee - 2017’ bronze statues by Gillie and Mark on display in Spitalfields Markets. Can you see what I’ve done here?.

Jeremiah & Dennis O’Donovan left Ireland in the 1830’s with Dennis going to Canada and working for the Hudson Bay Trading Company and Jeremiah moving to the East End of London and setting up a paper bag shop at 46 Crispin Street, Spitalfields, which continues trading today in New Spitalfields Market in Leyton.

4 Princelet Street in the historic conservation area of Spitalfields, looks like a run down and dilapidated building, but looks can be deceiving. In 1724, Benjamin Truman, the owner of the Truman Brewery which is just around the corner in Brick Lane moved in but today 4 Princelet Street has been conserved as a Georgian time capsule with its 15 rooms kitted out with period pieces and is available, along with a lot of others in the area, for hire and has been used and seen in Film and TV productions and for photoshoots.

Sud Italia Neapolitan Pizza, Old Spitalfields Market.

The Victorian Bath House, Bishopsgate Churchyard. There have been Turkish Baths at this location for over 200 years but the current building was designed by G Harold Elphick and opened in 1895 and is now Grade-II listed. It is currently a restaurant/bar and this is the street entrance as there is a lower level than can hold 150 guests.

Broadgate Venus - A 5 tonnes, patinated bronze sculpture by Colombian artist Fernando Botero in Exchange Square, Broadgate.
Image

Exchange House is a ten-story office block built in 1990 with an exterior parabolic arch supporting the office block to keep the underside span clear as it is built above the multiple tracks leading into and out of Liverpool Street Station.
Image

Rush Hour by George Segal - is a bronze sculpture of commuters wrapped up against the cold and the wet and making their way to work and stands in Finsbury Avenue Square, Broadgate.
Image

I left it too late to get a full elevation of 5 Broadgate looking across Broadgate Circle as a sky painted screen is now hiding the building work going on behind it. 5 Broadgate is the London headquarters of UBS AG a Swiss multinational investment bank.

Not often you get a tube train carriage all to yourself.

Brian, You have a great eye. I really must spend a day in London and have a mooch rather than rush everywhere which is what normally happens when I visit!

I love the two drips of water coming off the noses of the two "commuters" in Rush Hour. You really get a sense of their misery!
