City Hall, Hull

English Heritage has a detailed record of this building; a sample of the lengths to which they go is as follows: "Above the dentillated cornice, a copper dome with an open domed cupola and finial. Below, a Doric porte-cochere with pair of square columns at the corners and a balustraded balcony. Central revolving door flanked by panelled square columns, and beyond, pairs of glazed doors, all with overlights. On either side, a round-headed niche with a life-size figure sculpture." They say a picture paints a thousand words ....

  1. Your city hall looks a bit grander than ours. I wish they'd change the colour though.
