Post Office Tower

I have been fascinated with the Post Office Tower since my parents came to London on an "If This is Tuesday It Must Be Belgium"-type trip in 1970-ish. I still have a postcard they brought back

I was lucky enough to win the ballot for a place to visit with London Open House this year (2018). We took the bus down (from Camden Town) and walked through Fitzroy Square. Love the juxtaposition of old and new.

it rained that day and the day before but cleared up by the time of entry, a puddle reflection in Fitzroy Square

the views were spectacular, close enough to see detail but high enough to see far, looking east, UCH, UCL, St Pancras, Crick Institute and beyond

sadly the visit came to an end, it was full dark by then

last look up as we were leaving, we were lucky enough to have views from full daylight to sunset to night

The Post Office Tower Guide was printed Dec 1970. I borrowed a copy and scanned each page. You can see it here.
