St Pancras at 150 #2

A follow on from Monday’s feature which showed mainly aspects of the station and the railway from the 1860s to the 21st century. This section covers the years to 2018, from the reconstruction of St. Pancras as an international station right through to the 150 celebrations and includes many aspects of the hotel itself as well as a look at that apartment located within the famous clock tower.
