Happy Birthday, George Gilbert Scott

Posted by Tory Historian Wednesday, July 13, 2011 ,

Today (just in time) is the 200th anniversary of the birth of one of those men, without whom this country would definitely look completely different. Sir George Gilbert Scott is the architect who created our vision of Victorianism, whether his designs were of public buildings, domestic buildings or poorhouses. One wonders what he would make of this "elegant brasserie and bar" in the new St Pancras Hotel.

The picture above is one of Scott's iconic designs without which London is unthinkable.
