There are separate lights on the cross-bar and mast whose amplitudes vary to give a rising and falling wave effect. The Western Heights are in the background. Also taken this day (5th February 2013):

Waterloo Crescent was built between 1834-1838 by Philip Hardwick. Technically I suppose it could be described as Victorian architecture, too, as Queen Victoria began her reign in 1837. The Listed Building text for it is appended to:
