But there were other things in the square which took my eye such as a number of more modern sculptures by Bruce Denny.
Anyone for table tennis? A recent addition to the square I would think.
Buildings surrounding the square include the House of St Barnabas in Soho which was built in the 1740s. During the 1840s it was taken over by a charity to help homeless women which it still does today. Visitors are allowed to look at the architecture within the building prticularly the crinoline staircase which was built to accommodate the ladies in their large crinoline skirts of the day. Sadly it was closed to visitors when I was there.
This is the penny chute around the corner. It is attached to the railings and coins put in the slot go down the chute into the building. I have never seen this form of a collection box before.
