the perfect house for the bfg

23 Oct



found on Thurloe Square in South Kensington. A cursory glance at the satellite view of Google Maps explains a fair bit – the buildings were demolished to make way for the ‘new’ underground line in the 1880s but the facades of the buildings were preserved to protect the natural beauty of Thurloe Square. Fascinating stuff!

this is probably one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard.

it was written by Duke Ellington, and is played here by Ben Webster, and is mysteriously accompanied by stock photos of African-Americans.

go figure.
