THE Church of St. Dunstan stands in the churchyard on the east of Stepney High Street. It consists of a clear-storied nave of five bays, with wide aisles, western tower, and a choir of two bays, with a presbytery without aisles projecting eastward. There are also vestries adjoining the presbytery on the north, and north and south porches to the nave. There is no chancel arch, but the choir is sufficiently defined by the meeting of the open high-pitched roof of the nave with the nearly flat chancel ceiling between the fifth and sixth bays from the west, and the presence of stairs formerly... The fabric is of various dates, but though the rubble walls in large part are probably much earlier, the bulk of the detail is coarse "Perpendicular"of various dates ranging through the fifteenth century. Of this period, naturally the most prolific in works of architecture, there are many features of similarity to those at St. Dunstan's in the neighbouring churches of Bow, West Ham, Barking, the old Tower of Hackney Church, and many others. A chronological detailed description of the church being well-nigh impossible owing to the confusing effect of restorative zeal, perhaps the best course is to treat each feature in sequence from west to east.
there had been a steady decline in the quality and amenities of the train from Ankara to Urumqi (including, in the course of a trip, the train itself). Of certain advantage was that this was its maiden voyage, hence its exemplary standard of hygiene. Above the carriage entrance/exit doors, an LED screen displayed the current time, speed and how long to the next stop. This was another impressive aspect- the standard velocity was about 110kph, not much below twice that of some in our experience, and despite this, it rode the rail more smoothly than any. We pitied those who opted for Marco Polo's westbound route- a dose of reality would be their lot, when departing Urumqi. The sole negative aspect of our chamber was the individual television screens, which kept coming on spontaneously. We shared with a pregnant couple (well, one of them was anyway), who spoke scarcely more English than we did Mandarin. Following an extremely agreeable nap, I accompanied Matt and Jia to the dining car- which, to heap convenience upon convenience, was adjacent to ours. The Australian had already displayed his prowess at the border. every meal on that train, without his (metaphorical) spoon feeding, would have been rendered inedible by the large gastric ulcer that one would have doubtless acquired, thanks to the stress of trying to order and pay.
I love the alabaster windows that precede glass and stained glass windows. Legend has it that Saint Mark’s remains were stolen by Venetian seamen from a monastery in Alexandria and when returned to Venice, brought great prestige to the city. The original basilica was funded in large by the Partecipazio family who also contributed seven doges (dukes) to the city between 811-939.
