Testing Times

I was fortunate enough to be in town for Open House London (20 – 22 September this year) as the event celebrated its 21st birthday. Victoria Thornton started the architectural party in 1992, when 20 buildings agreed to open their doors to the public for free. In 2013, more than 800 buildings took part in London alone, with the concept now taken on by 20 other cities worldwide. Spoiled for choice, the first place I visited was the City of London School for boys (I was staying in the City), where I spent a surprisingly (to me) long time in the sidings with the Model Railway Society and also came across a display of old exam papers by the tea urn. Here’s a sample. Testing times, indeed.

– By the way, I feel quite deeply that vulgar fractions and terminated decimals have been too long ignored. Just a thought…
