An afternoon at the British Library

British Library

There’s a great exhibition at the British Library at the moment – London: A Life In Maps, featuring lots of amazing old maps.

There’s some huge copper-plate panoramas of London, revealing incredibly intricate sketching, as well as wall-filling street maps.

Lost at the Barbican

Barbican at night

In the evening, we went to a friend’s party at the Barbican, which was as baffling to navigate as ever, with the names on street signs appearing only to disappear again.

My friend’s flat was lovely, but the Barbican really is spectacularly ugly.

Heck it makes our block look positively charming!
