I went in to buy some SD cards for my camera. Didn’t expect luxury in a W H Smith.
This is a variety store at Liverpool Street Station, one of London’s big mainline rail stations. I was just waiting to pay when out the corner of my eye I saw this marble fireplace. I’d already noticed the gold trim and fancy curls on the ceiling and walls. Gorgeous remnants of the days when this was perhaps the first class lounge or the office of a railroad big wig. Do you know?
This is my standard form of disclosure that I am retroactively adding to all blog posts done before April 1, 2018, and will add to all new posts.
1. Is this experience open to the public?
2. Who paid the cost of me doing this?
3. Did I get any compensation or special consideration for writing this blog post?
4. Would I be as positive about this place if I had gone as a regular visitor?
Yes. I did go as a regular visitor.
