    Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.

      I totally agree. This could make for a fun poll. Thanks Brother Groakes.

            Wow. Amazing stuff, man. Not the greatest shot of the interior of Canada's Library of Parliment, so how about a shot of the exterior.

                  Ah i know that feeling WL.
                  I was the same with my local art gallery/museum,a cracking old victorian building,until a few years back.
                  Love that Eno track.

                      TF, that's Dead Finks don't Talk from the Warm Jets. A top ten in my books.

                      Lovely building, btw.

                      I had to send this library link off to one of my old prof's, he's as staggered by it as we. Though, I suspect he's been in more than a couple of them.

                        Of course!
                        Great album!

                          Thomas Fuller, the first architect for the building above, was the lead architect for the awesome "Gothic Revival"-style Library of Parliament in Canada. The NY State Capitol Building is one of my favorite buildings in NY, despite the fact that it's periodically populated with Empire State scoundrels of the worst kind: New York legislators!

                            Some great shots here.

                            This is the local library in Dorking, which the council is trying to move into the St Martin's walk shopping centre. I suspect the next thing if to turn in it to private housing a la Norbury Park.

                              Thanks for the info', Guzz. I wasn't aware of the connection. Mighty beautiful structure there, too bad about the inhabitants, but then again you know what creeps about the halls of our grand, gothic parliment.
