Where's That Then? No 36

Right then. Sorry for all this mucking about. All will become clear, because I'm bringing a book to its conclusion and my brain is therefore degenerating. More of that later, but in the meantime I give you a London corner turret. Quite spectacular, there are variants all around it. Not the usual quiz monochrome, but I stared and stared at this yesterday, an ample reward for the UE Eleventh Commandment: Thou Shalt Always Look Up.

Your usual Cotswold villages tend to leave me scratching my head, but as a Londoner I should know this. It's Sicilian Avenue, isn't it? Southampton Row, Holborn.

I haven't the foggiest, but I do love the photo and the angle of the turret.

Philip Wilkinson said...

Yes, Sicilian Avenue, one-time home of SKOOB BOOKS and temporary home of R G Lewis, the photographic shop. A rather civilized corner of the capital.

Peter Ashley said...

Well done Mick h! I think it was in Sicilian avenue that joe orton bought his copy of sergeant pepper.

I bought a fabulous volume of Dryden poems by Golden Cockerel Press in Scicilian Avenue, in sheet form for binding. Illustrations by Dorothea Braby.
I think I will go and fondle it for a bit now....

Peter Ashley said...

Mmmm. Fondling books, that's a good one for discussion. Mine would be the Elephant Press edition of John Michell's The Old Stones of Lands End.

Ooh, what have I stumbled upon - book perversions and yummy bits of architecture? Excellent stuff, I will be reading avidly from now on!
(p.s. loved the Unmitigated England books :-))

ChrisP said...

The wonderful thing about a fine bound book is it appeals to so many of the senses - the eye, of course, but the feel and smell of the leather, the way the paper crackles. Doesn't taste too good, though.

Peter Ashley said...

Welcome Murgatroyd, and thankyou. You never know what's going to happen in Unmitigated England.

Fred Fibonacci said...

Peter, I was going to make some sort of facetious comment about photographing architectural features like this uncontrollably and discovering I had Turrets' Syndrome but I don't think I'll bother; it wouldn't be funny.

Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
