While I was in London at the Medieval conference we went on a short walking tour of the Strand. It was mostly pointing out where medieval things used to be, which does not make for interesting pictures. However, I did manage to snap several shots of Victorian London.
The Strand is very grey.
It is always nice to know what time it is.
Definitely not medieval: its Victorian Gothic Revival! I think I might have been the only one excited. I love Victorian Pastiche, its fun to look at. This is the Royal Court of Justice, where the barristers all wear antiquated wigs (even the women).
I find that you can always find colour in the stone, if you look hard enough.
Some water, weathering, and a bit of locked up green space: London at its most typical.
Not medieval, nor Victorian, but Crazy Modern St George.
The timber framed is as thin and out of place as it looks.
Harry Potter on a Double-Decker bus! England is amazing and I love Harry Potter. Basically nothing new.
We actually found something medieval, but could not go in due to wedding.
All in all it was a fun walk, with some fun medievalist who all agree that: 1666 was a bad year for London.
