Gower Street across Euston Road, WC1
Gower Street across Euston Road, WC1
The progressive upgrading of the Euston Road as an east-west axis, culminating in the building of the Euston underpass in the late 1960s, has obscured the north-south axis of Gower Street - something cemented after the underpass was built by giving the northern section, now severed, a different name as "North Gower Street". When there are no large lorries blocking the sightline, however, one can look north-south along this old alignment and ignore the barrier of the Euston Road.
This shot from North Gower Street looks south between two modern buildings on the south side of the Euston Road, both dating from the early 21st century - the Wellcome Trust's Gibbs Building to the left and the new University College Hospital to the right. In the right foreground the mirrored frontage is part of a much-photographed reflective office building on the north side of the Euston Road.
At the foot of the Gibbs Building a tiny London Underground roundel marks Euston Square station; beyond it lies University College.
