Where's The Gherkin? (i)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

(i) A photo taken from the tower the Monument, London, June 2009. Information about the scene with the friendly help from Mr. Nick Weall:

The first tall building on the right is the Willis Building.

The tall building to the left of the Willis Building is the Gherkin which has the Lloyds building immediately in front of it.

The next rectangular tower is the Aviva Tower.

The white building in the background with the cranes on it is the Heron Building now much higher and completed.

From the left is 99 Bishopsgate designed by Terry Farrell, with Tower 42 rising behind it.

The Gherkin is the nickname for 30 St Mary Axe.

Thanks for helping a tourist in this great, big city, Nick :) . I think this scene gives nice material for the b/w conversion too.

If it helps the first tall building on the right is the Willis Building, the tall building to the left of the Willis Building is the Gherkin which has the Lloyds building immediately in front of it. The next rectangular tower is the Aviva Tower. The white building in the background with the cranes on it is the Heron Building now much higher and completed. From the left is 99 Bishopsgate designed by Terry Farrell, with Tower 42 rising behind it. The Gherkin is the nickname for 30 St Mary Axe. If you know all this anyway then just delete :~)

Very, very kind of you, Nick. Finally I dare to climb down from this tower without the fear of getting lost... :D The 30 St Mary Axe I knew but the other ones were a good information. Do you mind if I use your text later in the description? Mentioning the friendly guide of course. Best regards - sixten_imgs
