PART VIEW OF ST PAUL'S CATHEDRAL AND SNOWY RELIGIOUS STATUE (2010)

new and old religious offerings. St Paul's cathedral on Ludgate hill is a world renowned London landmark buillding and was designed by architect Sir Christopher Wren. The less well known monument seen on the right has a figure depicting Mary Magdalene and is across the road from the famous cathedral and has remnants of snow clinging to the top. The title of this religious monument is 'the St Lawrence and Mary Magdalene drinking fountain'. It was originally located in the Guildhall yard outside the church of St Lawrence Jewry and stood there for over one hundred years from 1866-1970. It was relocated to its presnet and probably final resting place in 2010. The piece was designed by architect John Robinson and sculptor Joseph Durham
