  • TfL’s Head Office to be turned into residential flats – IanVisits
    plans to vacate in the future The winner is TateHindle who proposed a conversion of the building into residential accommodation Options for keeping it as an office or turning it into a hotel were dismissed by the review The residents at the top will have some pretty good views from their future living rooms TfL will be working with TateHindle and will be leading on the planning application and the listed building approval process rather than engaging with an external developer at this stage TfL then expects to submit the planning application in autumn 2014 In the meantime the building will continue to be used as an office for TfL staff with plans for staff to remain there until 2015 At that point they move out to generic glass and steel offices in Canary Wharf and North Greenwich The era of working in possibly overdecorated but wonderful for it buildings is coming to an end There will be a day when the TfL roundel will no longer fly over the building Lets hope they play the Last Post when the flag is lowered for the final time The building is occasionally open during London Open House Weekend so this September might be the last chance to have a look around if tours are offered It would be nice to have a mass open day sort of event to let the public inside for a good sniff around the place before the builders move it though Designed by Charles Holden and built between 1927 and 1929 55 Broadway has been London Underground s Headquarters for over 80 years The building was listed Grade II in 1970 and upgraded to Grade I in 2011 by English Heritage on account of its outstanding national historic and architectural interest Facebook 54 Google 6 Linkedin

  • Ride a bus through a bus wash – IanVisits
    the centenary of the Catford Bus Garage so one day before the centenary on the Saturday there will be a chance to sit in a bus as it goes through a bus wash That is just one of a number of events taking place as part of TfL s Year of the Bus although I suspect for most people the bus wash will top the list of things to do They did the same at Merton last year and it is ridiculously good fun The garage was opened on 11th May 1914 and was not very old when requisitioned for the war effort It did not re open until 1920 when Thomas Tilling s Lewisham operation moved there due to space constraints at his other garage Thomas Tilling gained an agreement in 1923 to double the size of Catford and in addition the roof has been raised twice first in 1930 to enable double deck buses to use the garage and again in 1948 to accommodate AEC Regent III RTs The garage was modernised again in 1970 The rest of the entertainments which are somewhat buried on their website include Take a free ride on vintage and other interesting buses 54v Catford Bus Garage to Elmers End Station and 47v Shoreditch to Farnborough via Catford Bus Garage In addition to the celebratory event two buses have been repainted into old style liveries ADL E400 10136 has been repainted in the same style as Olympian L136 which carried a London Transport Tram livery in the 1980s ADL E200 36343 has been painted to resemble one of Selkent s Dennis Lances LV12 There will also be tours behind the scenes in the maintenance area In addition no bus event can avoid the ubiquitous pop up shop selling exclusive Year of the Bus

  • Petrie Museum putting 3D-scans of ancient Egyptian objects online – IanVisits
    images of artefacts from its collection available though a conventional web browser The library allows visitors to rotate and zoom in on the 3D images of artifacts catching fine details often not visible to the naked eye The Museum said that it plans to expand the image library to include a section in which visitors will be able to the history of objects from their use in Ancient Egypt to their excavation in the 19th century to their present location in the petrie museum galleries through a series of 3D navigation tools As a tool it is good way of seeing the objects in detail and doubtless a huge boon for academics I must confess though I prefer my viewing to be done in the museum and probably inside a glass case There is something difficult to define but tangible about being in the presence of the original even if you can t study it in such close detail But then again I am not an academic incidentally if you look up the Canopic jar lid and wiggle the mouse around you can do a good impression of Max Headroom In a related observation a replica of the tomb of Tutankhamun is being opened in the Valley of the Kings in order to cut down visits to the original which is now suffering the effects of 90 years of human breath inside its poorly ventilated interior A comment was made on the news from one tour guide that this was a bad idea as any city can then build a replica and no one would come to Egypt I think that is wrong mostly because Egypt is more than just one tomb so a visit to the replica tomb is just one part of an itinerary and as it is
