It has always struck me funny that the "new" Globe on Thames is 
unrecognizable as anything remotely resembling that, except from the 
river---and that it was built several at considerable distance from the 
site of the original (now an apartment complex).

Call me a traditionalist, but if you're going to bother to recreate the 
bloody thing, at a cost of millions of dollars (pounds-foreign exchange 
equivalents), why not do it as accurately as you can?

It was funny, to see the number of bewildered people wandering around 
Southwark, looking for wattle and daub where only red brick was visible 
to the pedestrian eye.

Why don't they resurrect the submerged (for its own good) Rose instead?

Best to all,
Carol Barton
