TQ2877 : Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, from the train

taken 4 years ago, near to Chelsea, Kensington And Chelsea, Great Britain

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, from the train
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, from the train
Beyond the Dogs and Cats Home is the railway line from Victoria to Clapham Junction and points southwards, with Battersea Park station behind the gasometer. The white post-modern building in the background on the right (every detail of which screams 1980s, in particular the Chippendale pediment that rips off Philip Johnson's Citicorp tower in New York) is the headquarters of a TV shopping channel.
Edit: within three years of this picture, both the gasometer and the white post-modern building had been demolished.
