MUSEUM OF THE YEAR

On the V&A being named 2016 Museum of the Year

The ‘loot’ of an empire’ s the proud V&A
From the days of pink maps when Britain held sway
So each acquisition
And each free admission
Takes us quite round the world in a day.

And some photos I took on a recent visit to the V&A.

One thought on “MUSEUM OF THE YEAR”

    Stunning photographs. I especially love the one with the windows looking onto the damp pavement. It’s so sumptuous and exotic that one might be very far from London. Thanks for sharing this !
