A Fashionable Square

Once the entrance to the Land Registry Office in Lincoln's Inn Fields, the buildings were built in the mid 17th century, a very fashionable quarter in London.  Exemptions from statutory payments were granted to the owners in regard to the construction of the buildings.  In return they were to allow public walk ways through the fields.
Sound familiar?

Since 2011 the building has become part of the London School of Economics, one of the most prestigious schools in the world.

Very elegant.

I'm guessing that a lot of bankers come out of this school.

Interesting to see your take on London Mo. I might come across something I have not seen before. Came over from Sara's.

So cool, one of the first buildings I saw the first time I got a tour through LSE. Great capture.

Hello Mo,

Just to avoid confusion: Lincoln's Inn Fields were laid out in the mid 17th century, but the Land Registry Office shown in your photograph was not built until 1906-13.
