These are the four caryatids at St Pancras New Church on the Euston Road (seemingly before being cleaned and restored). They are copies of the ones found at the Erechtheion in Athens and were built in 1822 – the church was designed to serve the increasing population of the surrounding area. They guard the entrance to the crypt (and look not unlike the Persephone of our logo). St Pancras Old Church, resting place of Mary Wollstonecraft and many others, stands to the north.
