Kings Cross Gasworks

Black and white gasworks

This gasometer, one of several originals, has been preserved at Kings Cross as the new Eurostar terminal emerged around it. I sold a copy of this image to a buyer who told me that he had had exactly this view (without the cranes I suppose) from a flat he used to have and that seeing it now reminded him of looking out the window from his bed and, as he put it, of 'being on the job with his girlfriend' - happy days. For myself, I just liked the way the crane worked with the gas holder to form, what seemed to me, a very attractive whole. This was one of the first pictures I took that I thought was worthwhile.
