A Souvenir of London (2)

St Paul's Cathedral obviously doesn't change much over time, but in this Edwardian view there is one striking difference: the colour. While the top half of the building is much as we know it today, the lower part is dark presumably with dirt and pollution. Otherwise, the most notable feature is the absence of people: perhaps the photographer, like IanVisits, took advantage of the quiet of Christmas day.
