There were steeples on churches for two reasons. Architecturally it creates more pleasing lines making the building more appear more graceful. The other reason, and probably the main reason is to put the congregation in a heavenly frame of mind. The steeple was designed to draw the eye upwards, towards heaven. Often it was the tallest feature in the landscape and could be seen from miles around. Here it seems odd that the surrounding buildings tower over the steeple making the gaze go, not heavenward but on a money making journey up through the offices that reside within.
Years of melted candle wax. What joy I could have had playing with that.
Can you see the odd ball dog?
