Daily Prompt: Giant

st-pancras-1st-pancras-2st-pancras-3st-pancras-4st-pancras-5st-pancras-6

I suppose it stands to reason that when faced with the question of what to put into the belly of a cavernous Victorian Gothic railway terminus building (other than trains, of course), the answer is to complement the curves of the giant wrought iron ribs with a pair of giant clocks suspended from the ceiling, and a giant (9m high) statue of an embracing couple saying their fond farewells…

London St Pancras Station was originally opened in 1868. At that time it housed the largest single spanned roof ever built and its design was copied across the world, including in New York’s Grand Central Station 🙂
