189/366 [Brain testing]

Spent some time today, reading a book and waiting, under this shadowed dome. I kept looking up periodically, trying to work out the various re-designs of this building and what it was originally and how the dome would have fitted in. Many years ago when I was helping assess a private library for incorporation into our bigger one, my colleage and I stood in the enormous foyer of a former stately home which had a dome very like this one. But today, no matter how I tried to move the pieces around in my mind, I just could not work out whether this very commercial building had once been a much loved family house.
