A New Discovery!
This is a picture of the Deptford Town Hall, about five minutes away from the library here at campus. This is where Nico and I performed our final piece--downstairs in one of the bathrooms. It was built in 1905, and the bathrooms were probably period. Today, as I was passing by, I looked up and noticed that there are actually four scuptures in between the windows on the second floor! Then above that, on the triangular pinnacle thing, there's a scene of a naval battle--and above that is a weathervane in the shape of a ship! If you count from right to left, one, two, three, that's a sculpture of Nelson. Who the other three are I have no idea, probably other navy guys, since this area is heavy into the Navy. (Goldsmiths itself was started as a naval school for the sons of officers) Just goes to show what you see when you look up! Such a pretty building.
