Dolphyn Court, Great Turnstile WC2
It's when you pass beneath and it is sillouetted against the sky that its beauty becomes apparent, especially if the sky is bright and blue.
A stone plaque records that it is the work of Annabel Richter Pentncy, and was added in 1989.
This uplifting piece has inexplicably disappeared, leaving only a small mark on the wall where the support pad was. The Mary Ward Settlement, which now owns the building, did not respond to a request for information about the dolphin's fate. Does anybody know where it went?
