Where is it? #71…And the answer is…

Where-is-it--#71

Can you identify where in London this picture was taken and what it’s of? If you think you can, leave a comment below. We’ll reveal the answer early next week. Good luck!

Well done to Jameson, this lighthouse sculpture does indeed adorn a building at 42 Moorgate. It has been suggested that the lighthouse, which apparently did once work, was the symbol of The Ocean Accident and Guarantee Corporation Ltd, the original occupant of the building. As Jameson points out, if you do want to know more, there is a terrific article on the sculpture here.

  1. Glad you liked my post on it. Thanks for linking.


  2. That’s on Moorgate, 42 apparently. This: http://richlyevocative.wordpress.com/2013/07/22/a-vision-from-the-top-deck/ suggests that the light in the little lighthouse used to work, which I’d love to see.
