    Ones that looked like passages?

      There are few things worse than a closed passage.

        Yes, Debs, that's the sort of thing I had in mind.

            O

            Any views on the attempt to disparage the suitability of East End men as cannon fodder?

                The spire looks close, Rob but I definitely see a striped building in the background with a tower and then a spire behind that, I looked up the architect who did the St Pancras public baths, Thomas W. Aldwinckle, to see if he had done anything closer to Spitalfields/Whitechapel as I see a similarity in the style of the brickwork, spire and tower and top window decorative lintels with arched inserts.

                  Stop Press: BBC London news are covering the Princess Alice disaster. Good old Aunty, always got her finger on the pulse!

                  Apologies for the diversion.

                    Just to add to the diversion and while you are here, Gary. Did you know that a bust of the fighter Tom Sayers appeared in a self portrait Sickert did?

                      No, I didn't. Is it a clue? A reference to Jack McCarthy's upbringing perhaps????
