(1/1)

FABphones:
Today, a Google Doodle in remembrance of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott's 140th Birthday.

david@london:
There is a lot of interesting G.G.S. information at https://gilbertscott.org/, including DanCruickshank's TV documentary 'The Family that built Gothic Britain'.




FABphones:
Thanks for that link. The Midland Grand Hotel (now St Pancras Hotel) has always been a favourite of mine. Back in the 80’s I used to walk past it regularly enroute to the station.

A huge structure, it had fallen into disrepair and was in need of renovation/refurbishment. Architecture is another interest of mine and I would have adored to go inside and take a look around.

Several ‘ghost host’ type tv programmes have been filmed there.
