Mr Monkey takes a Matcham tour, 21st February

"What a strange pattern for a floor in a British seaside resort"

The tour should have included visits to several of the venues inside the Winter Gardens, but there was a convention of magicians on and they were afraid that Mr Monkey might uncover their magical secrets. As an alternative, Mr Monkey looked at the tiling of the Olympia entrance hall, which was based on the lozenge pattern camouflage used on late WW1 German aircraft, then scurried upstairs to a room that isn't used for public functions any more.
