Due to a family member taking ill this morning (but is fortunately doing better and should be going home tomorrow), I unexpectedly found myself on the ninth floor of the Royal this evening. While they are there tonight, they have quite the view to take their mind off other matters -

A few images from the newly opened Egyptian Gallery at The World Museum. Really quite impressive; especially the Mummy section. (Apparently before the 2nd World War bombing the entrance hall was very impressive with marble-columns and arches):

There are pictures online some where regarding those galleries before WWII.

Very 'Indiana Jones's etc.
