Answer September 2019

Answer September 2019

Here is a bit more of the frieze detail surrounding this month’s clue:

The clue pictures are of the frieze on the HSBC building at the top (south end) of Fore Street.

Designed for the Midland Bank in 1896, the frieze is constructed from red sandstone, and  shows the coins of the currency at that time.  Now a Grade II listed building

Has that reclining cherub pointing a finger been renovated recently? It look rather like Boris Johnson!

Thanks to Stefan Sobel for the photographs.

  1. The cherubs all seem to be pointing at each other!
    Not sure you can draw any more political parallels from that though.
