A lighthouse in London

Oysterhouse Lighthouse, Kings Cross, London

I love this old building right by Kings Cross station.

Oysterhouse Lighthouse, Kings Cross, London

The story is that the building originally served as an oyster house – oysters being the fast food of the day – with eateries often being marked by a lighthouses, much like McDonalds (spit!) uses the familiar Golden Arches to catch the eye of hungry punters.
