Block 41: Gothic Revival

Block 41
The library in block 41, which is the Gothic Revival gem in the area (it even has a (minor) member of the royal family on its board of governors), has been painted in its original colours for this, its bicentenary.  The house next door to it was, traditionally, the home of the head librarian (but is now home to the head archivist), and the house next to that was built for the founder of the library, who wanted to live close by so he, his wife and family could benefit as much as possible from the education to be had within a library.
