St Michael's in 1925 prior to the removal of pews. Shows how light and airy the soaring architecture of its columns impress.

Helen - I suspect you're having a lend of us, but is it really true? There are no references to John Thornton in Wiki's "Angry Birds" page. Lol Lol Lol Lol

Shameful that Thornton gets no credit but sadly his work is out of copyright. Lol But pictures don't lie. Look at the eyebrows, beak and attitude on that little birdy. Even the Twitter logo is suspiciously similar.

Rob has a similar drawing of this in the library collection but this appears to have been taken from a publication called 'The Builder' from June 1891 by Messrs Paley and Austin Architects.

Sadly Prof, many of those library images are just very small - they were just samples and obviously not intended for enlargement. Sad
