Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Art deco

Walking down Cornhill towards the Royal Exchange in the City of London, I came across this wonderful art deco building. I haven't been able to find out its history yet. It is currently a bar/restaurant.

  1. How interesting - such a classic, ancient Greek look above, and so modern below! I'm sure that there's something deep and poignant in there somewhere :)

  2. So many hidden gems in London. I wonder what the inside is like. Sometimes interesting buildings are open to the public in London Architecure week. I've seen a few of London's best art deco buildings that way.

  9. I love the building. Do you think it might be slightly older than art deco? Perhaps Art Nouveau?
