A bit about The Kings Cross Lighthouse

This wonderful building in Kings Cross, London was erected in 1875, and lovely too to see it has not been demolished as so many equally unique structures have in London.

 

It occupies the triangular space between Pentonville Road and Gray’s Inn Road giving it the look of London‘s very own Flatiron building.

 

Kings Cross is a place for meeting people. You can see that if you stand about long enough. These are generally persons from the two mainline stations. Also the meeting of drug and alcohol users that live on London‘s streets. Big railway terminals attract the homeless world wide. Not to mention the punters who meet up with sex workers.

 

The lighthouse draws them all in.

 

Oh one last wonderful fact, This building was used as the location for Harry Palmer’s (Michael Caines) office in the 1967 film ‘Billion Dollar Brain’. That has to be worth the effort to draw it on its own
