framing suggestion:
I'm not a particular fan of John Betjeman's poetry, or of any poetry for that matter, except
for the heart rending verse that came out of WW1. But having read a biography of him
recently I have to respect his passion for the preservation of old England in his campaigns to
save buildings, railways, way of life, etc. and his perseverance in bringing to public notice the
wanton destruction of town centres by greedy developers and ignorant councillors. This bronze
statue of him, which unfortunately rather suggests the 'bumbling fool' aspect that his
detractors claim is all there was, stands on the forecourt of the newly rebuilt St. Pancras Station
in London and celebrates his contribution to the campaign to preserve this old station and
hotel.
Everybody that I watched photographing his statue took the long-shot, or a close up of his
face, looking up in wonder at the spectacular ceiling. But I felt this opposite view says just as
much about the man, as he shuffles past me across the station concourse to catch the 5:10
from Platform 2. It also gets his dates in, which could be handy.

I couldn't find a bronze frame that had gone green, so here's a brown 'bronze' one!
