My self imposed week off blogging has now resulted in a bit of a back log of things & stuff for me to talk about. Not helped by the unscheduled and completely mind blowing visit to 18 Folgate Street on Sunday (see below for my post about it). I couldn’t not talk about that could I? So the backlog gets even bigger. Apologies in advance then for what may well turn into a barrage of posts over the next few days. Not normally needing much of an excuse to leave work until later and/or another day, I can already see a frantic end to the week trying to hit my target, and my usual rule of not working at weekends having to be broken. But enough of my domestic nonsense, let’s try and concentrate on the job in hand shall we?
The picture above is pretty self explanatory to be honest, doesn’t really require a lot explaining, which is nice. Taken from Ebury Bridge (it’s a railway bridge in case you thought you’d missed out on a new bridge spanning the Thames) looking pretty much due south, you get a great vista that includes the mainline rail tracks heading out of Victoria, Battersea Power Station and almost unnoticed between the new development of “riverside apartments” on the right, the accumulator tower for the Pimlico Pumping Station. Born about 200 yards from where this photo was taken, I’m finding myself more & more drawn to this part of London – must be something to do with my age I guess. Expect more whimsical musings about Pimlico in the near future. For the moment though, just enjoy the view.
