Grand Central

I like this picture – of Birmingham New Street railway station’s main concourse – because there’s a lot to look at. The people going about their business, looking at the departures board, chatting, eating, drinking – even riding a bicycle! It’s like a slightly less busy Where’s Wally (or Waldo, for my American friends) scene, or perhaps something from a Richard Scarry book, but with humans instead of animals (although wouldn’t it be great if Lowly Worm was found in there somewhere?). It’s a busy, busy world indeed.

    1. Yep. He was Wally first and then got a name-change for the American market. He has different names in other countries too – he’s Willy in Norway, and Effy in Israel as a couple of examples.
