Cardinal’s Wharf sits on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. Sir Christopher Wren lived here while he was building St Paul’s Cathedral. Every day he would have come out of this door and seen his creation rising. That’s the story anyway. Apparently the house was not built until the year St Paul’s was finished. Wren may have lived in a house close to here that is long gone. Nice doorway though!
Why is this doorway so important? It’s my front door! The local council insisted we keep the look of the place intact. Behind it is a not-so-interesting modern front door.
I’ve chosen to celebrate my first 1000 views with one of my passions, doors. Heaven knows, I might get another 5 views!
