St Paul’s Cathedral, London, England, April 2011
Photo taken from the walkway around the exterior of the dome.
The two western towers are topped with a pineapple – a symbol of peace, prosperity and hospitality. Near the top of the south-west tower is a clock, which was installed in 1893 and has three faces, each more than 5 metres in diameter. Above the clock hang Great Tom, the hour bell, and Great Paul, the largest swinging bell in Europe.
I was cheering for England in the World Cup. Alas, they failed to put much between the goal posts, so further progression for England is not to be.
