The roof of the international railway station in London, St Pancras.
Of course, viewed from the inside.- perhaps a creative functional decoration in itself.
The entire railway station is fascinating, but more about this on next monday walk.
The weekly photo challenge “Ornate“
Wonder if this brave englishman-sculpture is worrying about the roof.?
Sir John Betjeman (lived 1906-84), an english poet, writer, and broadcaster
who described himself in Who’s Who as a “poet and hack”.
He was “Poet Laureate of the United Kingdom” from 1972 until his death.
The sculpture is the work of the artist Martin Jennings.
Betjeman was a passionate defender of old victorian architecture,
honoured with this statue in recognition of his impressive work,
to save this old building after it was threatened with demolition.
A renovation that was completed in 2007 if I remember correctly.
