Cardinal Cap Alley is an alley in Bankside. It used to lead to a brothel called the The Cardinal's Cap which was so-called because it had been owned by Henry Beaufort, the Bishop of Winchester, who had paraded here, wearing his red hat, after being appointed a cardinal by the Pope.
The next day, I had a quite day, so I thought I'd go and see the cool set up at South Bank, so I get up extra early, get to Liverpool Street at stupid o'clock and talk a work to work, then think lets go see Batman, with Dan's assurance of it being there for 20 days I hurried off to South Bank, bearing in mind I had a heavy leg training session that morning, my little legs had already taking a battering. I walked, then walked some more, looking at cool things along the way, an underground skate park with cool graffiti, Shakespeare globe, ITV studios, a bridge, London eye, Houses of Parliament? Ok, so I walked a bit too far, but I thought I would have seen an 8ft Lego Batman by now.
Its now drizzling, cold and I have Dan Calligari text me and concerned message on my whereabouts, I try to text him with my frozen fingers, all the while realising I am in the exact spot where Batman was, but alas he was gone, nowhere to be seen. Not happy and looking like a drowned rat I walked back to the office. When I get to my desk I see Usaine standing in front of me and laughing at me and mentioning something like 'oh yeah, they took it down last night and forgot to tell you'.
ll was not wasted though, I saw some cool things, typography, signage, large format graphics, graffiti and architecture, so all not lost. Moral of the story is, don't listen to Dan B and get yourself down to South Bank, theres cool stuff there.
