The Google logo has again been transformed into a work of art, just as Sir George Gilbert Scott transformed many hundreds of workhouses, schools, churches and cathedrals into architectural masterpieces.
His most notable work however was the Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras station which boasted 300 rooms, with many costly fixtures including rooms with gold leaf walls, a fireplace in every room and a grand staircase.
The hotel was shut down in the 1980′s and re-opened in on the 5th of May 138 years after it’s original grand opening in 1873.
Today Google’s Logo is celebrating the 67th birthday of the Mr. Men and Little Miss creator Roger Hargreaves. The British author wrote 90 books in the Mr Men and Little Miss series which have had sales over 85 million worldwide in 20 languages.
The Google changes each time you access the page and features a total of 16 different doodles from Mr Happy to Little Miss Chatterbox.
Today the Google logo was transformed into a royal procession through the gold paved streets of London to celebrate the royal wedding between Catherine Middleton and Prince William of Wales.
We wish the happy couple all the best in their future and thank them greatly for letting us have the day off from work!
On Sunday Google’s was a bit sweeter than usual, to commemorate the 119th anniversarry of the first ever recorded ice cream sundae!
119 years ago in Ithaca , New York John M. Scott and Chester Platt invented the dish, which they first derved as the “Cherry Sunday”. After attempting to trademark the term “Sunday” it became known as a “Sundae”!
If you used Google today (who doesn’t use Google every day?) you would have seen the doodle for today is celebrating Robert Bunsen’s 200th birthday, what you may not have noticed is the mouse control it has.
Move your mouse left or right and the flame goes from yellow to blue respectively, move your mouse up or down and the flame gets bigger the higher your mouse is.
