Yeah it's from Hamleys, shame the window was a bit dirty. I know what you mean the colours look stunning, would have been great on a clear sunny day.

I Think it's got a lot to do with the perspective and aesthetics of said photo: that's a new angle to guage and appreciate St Phillips finery and also the line-of-site for the Nat West Tower to look dominant and I'm-the-man (kind of scenario) is almost ince perfect. Great set of photos UV

An old Kennedy House there, and they are just building the M&B offices on Fleet St?

That makes it about 2000?

Good work! We could only be a few talls away from a very impressive skyline.
