Presiding over a sunny Square in (early) Spring

February 24th, 2014, 2pm

It was 13°C with scattered clouds. There was moderate breeze.

I went for a walk this lunchtime round Russell Square.

Created in the first decade of the 19th Century, Russell Square is one of a number of Squares built on the Bloomsbury Estate, land owned by the Dukes of Bedford.

The photo above shows the rather grand Hotel Russell, built in 1898 to a design by the architect Fitzroy Doll. It was apparently meant to imitate a red brick French château.

Some other photographs that I took in the Square this lunchtime are shown below.



Paul, Christine, David Wade and Craig said thanks.
