Stirred, not shaken

July 26, 2010

I gave a “lunch-time” lecture on progress inside the Portrait Gallery recently, adopting much the same method as I do here, which is to say idly to let the pictures tell the story. I was a bit nervous that some of the audience might be shaken by the radical events taking place inside the well-loved building but was pleased to find no such thing – just interest and enthusiasm.  

So here again are some pictures:

The library looks well in its new location – a 3D jigsaw puzzle. I will try to estimate how many pieces…

New roof-lights – good strong glass you will note
