There's a huge photograph of the Royal Family taken around the time of the Diamond Jubilee which hangs on the front of the Sea Containers building overlooking the Thames. I was on the opposide side of the river in front of the ship President and I liked the look of the faces peeping over the top. You can't quite see Prince Edward but he was only a smidge at that time.

I know it's cut in half down the middle and the photo not quite centred - it's quite deliberate.

Thanks for looking. Smile
Chris

sinking slowly Smile

Our HQ used to be in one of the adjoining buildings and you used to be able to exit (unnoticed) via an underground walkway into SC House...so much for security WinkSmile

I recall a visit we had from Prince Philip to a factory I worked back in the 70's.
He said with a wry smile on his face,'' why is it everywhere I visit I smell paint ?''
We had big stones as a ''decorative'' feature all round the car park.
The idiots even had us painting them white !!

This is so very fine-- well, I am a bit amused, perhaps a Brit would see it differently!

Excellent observational skills, Chris, I've seen the photo many times but never like this. We are very amused! Grin
