Sir Giles - Google Doodle


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

There is a lot of interesting G.G.S. information at, including DanCruickshank's TV documentary 'The Family that built Gothic Britain'.

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.
