St Andrew Undershaft and the Gherkin

Aldgate (City)


12 March  2005 • The view put two contrasting buildings in close proximity. The pre-Great Fire church tower of St Andrew Undershaft stands near the junction of a street called St Mary Axe with Leadenhall Street. The office block called ‘The Gherkin’ whose proper name is ’30 St Mary Axe’. The Gherkin had not long been completed when the picture was taken.
