I went for a walk along part of Fenchurch Street a couple of weeks ago, and I found out what building has the gilded sailing ship weather vane atop it. It’s the Lloyd’s Register of Shipping, which is rather appropriate.

The front of the building has decorations in it and even the metal gates in front of the doorways have decorations.

In fact, there’s so much there that you should maybe keep an eye out for a Website Update, as I might do a whole webpage on this building!
