Black and White #10 St Pancs

black and white photograph of st panics hotel London by susan sheldon nolen

I was cracking on to the British Library and checked the sky for rain. Nothing worse than working for a few hours in damp clothing. There was something about the skyline and the brooding gothic lines of the Great St Pancras Hotel that captured me for a few moments. It’s a massive red brick affair and started its life out in a competition in 1865, then becoming the Midland Grand Hotel. I so prefer St Pancs to the rather dull sounding Midland Grand Hotel. It’s hard to believe the hotel closed in 1935 and became railway offices! I was disappointed at that…all rather dull and boring. But then….what’s this? It now had a rather mysterious name, St Pancras Chambers. Sounds like a good place to set a mystery!  So a quick stop, to look upwards,  before dashing into the British Library for Week#10 Black and White St Pancras Hotel, London.



About susan sheldon nolen

It’s rare to catch me without coffee, a form of camera, or my beloved wire fox terriers. I love the history, the art, and it’s a massive part of my life, as I either paint, write, or get interrupted by my dogs, reminding me of the real world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

  1. Susan–That looks like the perfect setting for a delicious turn-of-the-century murder mystery. Great photo.

    • Fannie! Thanks! I wondered that also especially with that name The St Pancras Chambers…sound perfect for a mystery! Hope the writing is coming along! May be you want to tackle a mystery? 🙂

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
