Re: Re: West front, Houses of Parliament, College Green
Great find Paul! Funnily enough, I actually admire the symmetry that exists between the East and West fronts. Much like the colonade which temporarily linked the central original portion with the Foster Place entrance this might be slightly incongruous. Having said that, had Grattans Parliament continued to function beyond 1800 it would almost certainly have resulted in an expanded circular building stretching as far as Fleet Street…..with a slight realignment of Westmorland St…..this proposal would have made for a memorable vista accross O’Connell Bridge!
