Terracotta Glory

By Philip_H
Hi All,

Thanks for all the C&C's on my last upload of Horse Guards Parade/Whitehall.

This image is of the main entrance to the Natural History Museum in London, designed by Alfred Waterhouse (1830-1905), a Victorian architect particularly associated with the Gothic Revival style of architecture. Waterhouse received, without competition, the commission to build the Natural History Museum in South Kensington (18731881), a design which marks an epoch in the modern use of architectural terracotta and which was to become his best known work.

Best wishes,
Philip

I wonder how much it would cost to get the same kind of work done now?......That's if you could find a Stonemason capable of doing it?

Well spotted.....Ade

Super shot, I visited last autumn and was blown away by the architecture never having been before - I loved the birds and monkeys on the columns inside as well - good detail and light and contrast not an easy subject to photograph. Well done
