Senate House Library
Todays picture is of the fine building of Senate House, which houses the University of London Library. Apart from being an astonishing research resource, there is a little bit of their background which is amusing enough to warrant repeating.
The library was looking for a home after the war, so they were given an older building to use, which they fitted out as required. Unfortunately, when they put books on the shelves, they found that it was all too heavy and the shelves were pulled off the walls, and floors collapsed. So they got this built.
