Bank, City Of London
3

Couple of compositions of the financial district of London at Bank underground station, including skyscrapers, the Royal Exchange which is the white pillared roman style building and the Bank of England. The second photo makes me think a little of Batman and Gotham City.

The Royal Exchange in London was founded in the 16th century by the merchant Sir Thomas Gresham on the suggestion of his factor Richard Clough to act as a centre of commerce for the City of London. The site was provided by the City of London Corporation and the Worshipful Company of Mercers, who still jointly own the freehold. It is trapezoidal in shape and is flanked by Cornhill and Threadneedle Street, which converge at Bank junction in the heart of the City. It lies in the ward of Cornhill.
