The Bishopsgate Institute

Shot with Olympus E520
Opened on New Year's Day 1895, the Bishopsgate Institute by Liverpool Street Station has provided an independent meeting place for people with shared interests to learn about a vast array of subjects. This photograph adorning the entrance hall shows a scene from a lecture at the institute in 1910 - the array of faces provides an interesting insight. At a guess, few of you will have walked through the doors, which is a shame as it is one of the few city buildings fairly much untouched by the 20th Century.

I'll be able to tell you more about it in a few weeks time as I've signed up to learn Chinese there.
