hawking scene

A trip to Picturehouse Central at Piccadilly (the former Trocadero) was an unexpected delight last week: an excellent tavola calda (and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere)a good film, and extraordinary bas relief art nouveau murals (above the escalators); these were completed in 1896 by Gerald Moira and depict scenes from the Arthurian legends, this is ‘Hawking Scene’. More Gerald Moira this week and also something about the film – Citizen Jane: Battle for the City.
