Had to get this one done before Christmas, and as you can see, was out in the shops before the end of the year, last year that is. If you know George Lane, there is a yawning gap between Lily's Indulgence and a Barnardo's charity shop, which used to be occupied by a watering hole called Red Mantra. I decided to fill it with something a little more grand, that ties in nicely with the NatWest branch opposite. The curved balcony I nabbed from a drawing I did aeons ago of the Ivor Novello building at 152-160 Wardour Street, and the steps were based on an old country pile. I was going to add pineapples on top of the pedestals, but that would have been silly.
