    Who'd have thought the chances of surviving the Bomb raid would have been under Queen Victoria, all four corners around her had suffered bomb damage.

    she's suffered more damage since then with the kids hanging around there. I only noticed the other day that there's railings at the top of the steps around her now.

    No chance of taking a nice pic of it anymore

    That was what was left of the Customs House. Like the Museum, it was gutted by incendiaries but, sadly, unlike the Museum, it was demolished.

    See some pics of it on this page and those following it-
