Description

Peter’s Hill View of St. Paul’s Cathedral - 5x7 London Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale.

This London greeting card features a Peter's Hill view of St. Paul's Cathedral. This approach to St. Paul's from the river used to be known as St. Peter's Steps and prior to the blitz of World War II would have been a much different landscape from what I've heard. This area was still the London of Charles Dickens' day up until much of it was bombed. The image of the dome of St. Paul's rising from the smoke is still a powerful image all these years later. I wonder how different this view would be without the war?

London is not a static city. Despite it's tourist trade, it's a living breathing place that continues to build alongside the old. So whatever might have been, the approach to the 17th century is filled with the modern. And that contrast is one of the things I personally love about London. When St. Paul's Cathedral was built, it was cutting edge. So it seems fitting that it should be surrounded by modern architecture. At least that's my take on it.

This view up Peter's Hill is a slice of London. From the architecture to the crowds enjoying a sunny day to take in the sights. Maybe the image on this card reminds you of your own time in London?
