      Very impressive image; I like the idea that it might have been a Coptic Church in Egypt!
      I suppose that St P has done more than any other Victorian building to create the idea that all Victorian public buildings look like railway stations!
      I visited St P on an Open weekend some years ago, and the queues were something else! This building arouses a huge amount of public interest. Maybe Palmerston should have gone for Scott's original Foreign Office proposal after all!

      Thanks Martin. I tend to think that the significant elements in Victorian architecture are the application of gothic to secular buildings and the use of new materials like glass and iron on buildings like conservatories, markets and train stations. St Pancras exemplifies both. I went on a tour around the inside too; I certainly think Palmerston should have gone for Scott's foreign office as I do find the building they did construct rather mediocre.
