All Aboard

Queens Emma, originally uploaded by Neorelix.

It's not often I say nice things about modern architecture in Cambridge as you know but ever since this was built, ten years ago, I've admired it. It's the Queen's Building in Emmanuel College and houses a 120 seat theatre for music, lectures or drama, together with seminar, reading and music practice rooms. It reminds me of an old paddle-steamer though. I feel an urge to don my white suit, boots and hat, climb aboard and glide down the mississippi with my sippin' whisky, playing Texas Hold 'Em and getting slapped by Miss Kitty...
