Lamps

As my blog is titled “Lamp for the Journey”, I thought it was high time we actually saw some lamps.  So here we go.  Today’s picture is of one of the splendid lamp fittings on Freemasons’ Hall near Covent Garden in London.  The whole building is magnificent, both inside and outside, and is often used for filming.

Built in the late 1920s and early 1930s, it is a splendid example of art deco architecture.  It was constructed as a memorial to those Freemasons who lost their lives in the First World War, and as such is also one of the country’s largest war memorials.  The lamps, next to the main door beneath the clock tower, are a superb indication of the art deco detailing throughout the building.
