Breton House, Snowsfields, Tanner St and St Thomas St

This block, and blocks like it, are quite fascinating. Why? Because, like the Lloyds Building, some of their inner workings are visible from the outside. In this case, its the staircase and the rubbish chute that is open to the world, like a cut-away drawing from The Eagle. And the light helps.
