Have you seen the new Paddington film yet? I haven’t, but after a friend showed me the scene in the link below, I certainly will be doing now.
The scene shows Paddington and Mr Brown arrive at the rather splendid Geographical Guild Headquarters. They require assistance for something – which I’m sure watching the whole film will explain – and the lady behind the desk sets a massive operation into motion that involves massive lengths of brass piping to create a grand pneumatic tube system that runs along the entire area they’re in. Which is big.
The rest of the room is covered in portraits, marble, expensive carpets and two enormous globes, which can be seen in the background of the image above.
