Forest Hill Pools dragons

Post by ALIB »

I couldn't find the thread that alerted people to the missing dragons from FH Pools during the re-building works.
Anyway, at least one of them has returned to the roof. Assume the other will be in place shortly.

These are quite common and reproductions can be bought off the peg today (I researched them when I did the logo for the pools campaign). They aren't unique to the pools, but they do look good.

i was thinking of the 'green dragon' of Sydenham when i thought to post.

I have to say , the dragons don't look like the originals. They are cleaner, but not the same.

Thanks for your input Lee

The dragon in that picture looks the same as the one that can be seen on Google streetview (http://g.co/maps/y6anq) which even in that picture looks a different colour to the old edging tiles. However in Google the second dragon looks different (different body, larger wings) so perhaps they weren't a matching pair?

Here are some (rather poor) images I took before the work started.
