I took this today at what I think is the junction of 'Old Street and City Road, EC1 London. Took them from my cab window while waiting at the traffic lights, nowhere to stop and park of course. Are they P-39 Airacobra aircraft ? or Kingcobra. Strange picture to have on display...

The Red Gallery on the corner of Rivington St and Old St.

Probably a photograph taken at the The Bell P-39 Airacobra factory in Wheatfield, New York State.

What it's doing on the gallery frontage..........?

Yes ! What a wonderful thought !! Would be nice if there were... Drove past it again today, but from a different angle. One day hopefully I'll find a place to stop and go inside for a look around.

I'm glad that I took the aircraft photographs when I did. This is what it now looks like. Took these yesterday. Very odd ?
