"I wasn't born in the 60's". Gosh, you know how to twist the knife!! But thanks for your kind comment. I don't think I could live in a place with no historic buildings to shoot!

I wasn't born in the 60's but am very familiar with the term Tardis. My brother (and consequently me) was and avid Dr Who fan. It does look like a modern portaloo though. I think its very rude of them to spoil your brilliant photo like that. I can't say I have quite seen a building like that before. On a trip to Canada, I was overwhelmed with some of the old buildings as we don't really have much like that here in New Zealand - especially where I am from as our city was wiped out completely by an earthquake in 1931.

Thanks Tania and Don for your great comments. Don, a tardis is a time machine (in a British children's sc-fi television series) which was supposed to be much bigger on the inside than it was on the outside. It was modelled on an old-fashioned police box, which was what officers used to call their control rooms in the old days before wireless. The series went out in the sixties which is why Mike and I both know what a tardis is!!

Very pretty shot Steve, what a piece of work that building is. What on earth is a tardis? Is it a trash hopper, a phone both, porta potty maybe? It looks very large, sorry to be ignorant about tardises, Don

Steve I love the detail of this photo. Im glad there was blue sky for this photo it lifts it. What a beautiful building. This level of workmanship does not happen often today

Thanks Mike! Yes, the town planners of Amiens have no idea how to compose a photograph:) There's another identical tardis on the other side which I managed to keep out of shot. And you're right, this facade does put one in mind of York.
