Beautiful, Escher-like structure, Philine.
Philine: You are right, many thanks, Ray!
I thought the same as Ray, Philine...A stunning place.
Philine: Many thanks, Frank!
Superbe Philine! Escher me vient à  l'esprit...
Bonne journée
Philine: Je suis d'accord - j'adore cette entrée. Merci beaucoup. M. Richard!
Bonne journée
Indeed... glamourous. Nice light in the windows captured too.

Just imagine getting tried in a place like this Philine!
Philine: A former friend of mine showed it me- and I was mesmerized. Many thanks, Chris!
What an amazing staircase Philine. I have never seen anything like it
Philine: Yes, it is unique in some respects -and not well-known. Many thanks, Bill!

A post enlightenment masterpiece.
Philine: Yes, a real gem which only a few tourists know. Many thanks, Mike! I knew that Ingrid's bag is red!

Oh.. how wonderful is that! I thought at first it was one of those clever optical illusions of a never-ending staircase. Very elegant and very well captured.
Philine: Your description is very well - the architect thought of waterfalls flowing down the entrée. Only a few tourists know this architectural jewel. A friend of mine showed it me. Many thanks, Alan!

You are going to tell me this is a picture of a painting, Philine!
Philine: It's pity that I couldn't capture the 3D- effect of this glorious staircase foyer. Many thanks, Lisl!

I didn't mean that, Philine, - sorry - it just looks like a complex painting
Philine: I understand - thank you kindly, Lisl!
What an incredible staircase! The very delicate carving is like nothing I have ever seen.
Philine: I never saw such a pompous staircase before. Many thanks, Mary!

Extraordinary ... Yes, Escher feel to it .. Sort of not knowing whether we are coming or going
Philine: A good remark- many thanks, Richard!
A magnificent staircase, Philine.
Philine: Yes, it is - many thanks, Pauline!
A wonderful staircase, imagine the hoi-polloi making their grand entrances on this staircase.
Philine: Thank you kindly, Brian!
The stuff of fairytales. It's gorgeous Philine
Philine: Yes, you are right - many thanks, Janet!
Very good that it is still standing - here it would probably have been pulled down to be replaced by a shopping centre!
Philine: Oh, I cannot believe - there is much love for tradition and old buildings in GB - NT, English Heritage ... -many thanks, Prof. Wilson!
