TQ3280 : London: Shard visitors on the 72nd floor

London: Shard visitors on the 72nd floor
London: Shard visitors on the 72nd floor
The higher of the two public galleries is 802 feet from ground level and is (perhaps generously) described as the 72nd floor: the lower public floor is the 69th but the two 'floors' in between are really only the landings of the staircase connecting them.

Seen only vaguely from the street below, it is clear from these close quarters that the various glazed 'sides' of the building are set apart from the fabric of the building and do not themselves form the basis of the structure. This 'shard', as I suppose we would be wanted to call it, rises from the southeast corner of the building to a point in mid air, well separated from the south and east faces.
