The Old Lady of Threadneedle Street

It’s a huge citadel in the City of London occupying an entire block, serious, austere and impenetrable and yet it attracts a “Shakespearean” polyglot of persons. Suits rub shoulders with the young and trendy, some of whom are there to experience Bank’s Forum like atmosphere. It is also the go-to place for the influencer selfie. Who knew? Light bounces off Bank of England stone and strangeness roils around it.
