The Anchor | Bankside, London

the anchor at bankside in London with St Paul

After the colourful Oregon sunset of yesterdays post, here is a photo with no colour at all. This black and white shot is of The Anchor, a historic pub beside the Thames at Bankside in London. The recognisable shape in the background is the famous dome of St Paul’s Cathedral on the other side of the river Thames. In 1666, Samuel Pepys sat in the bar of the Anchor as he watched and wrote about the great fire of London. More recent history saw the Anchor featured in the film Mission Impossible, with Tom Cruise seen drinking a beer outside the inn.
