The light fantastic

I love the incandescent glow of these beautiful windows. They are decorated to a sumptuous degree and so effectively illuminated.

This architectural detail was stumbled upon by chance on my Open House London travels around the city. They are in the hall of the Bishopsgate Institute, close to bustling Liverpool Street train station.

The building was designed by Victorian architect Charles Townsend. His other achievements include the Whitechapel Gallery, now adorned with a scattering of golden leaves.

There will be more to come from the buildings of London soon…
