May Theme Day - Bakeries



Another worldwide city theme day, this time for May and the theme is Bakeries. The days are long gone when bakers could afford premises in Central London. This frieze above what is now an office block in Artillery Row is all that remains from that time. Inside, they built a sloping floor to help transport the flour.

It always surprises me what you see in London if you look up...I reckon if you sliced off the bottom story of all Central London buildings you'd have a really different place.

Wonderful, hopefully this reminder of the past will be there for a long time to come.

These sculptures are amazing and I'm glad London has kept them. So sad about the real bakeries though.

The frieze is pretty interesting but so sad that bakeries have left the area.

A terrific reminder to always look up in great cities like London (true of New York City and Paris too!) -- there's another world up there.
