It was interesting recreating Miss Geltschilling's office from the older strips #364 and #366. This is the first time Geltschilling has appeared since those two strips.

2019-11-24 Rerun commentary: I love the anti-flirting by Geltschilling. I wonder what actual Bond movies would be like if they switched Moneypenny from flirting with Bond to this.

With that view of St Paul's Cathedral out the window, Geltschilling's office might be located in the London Stock Exchange. Or maybe the Tate Modern. (Anyone with a better knowledge of London geography and/or a more useful tool for this purpose than Google Maps is welcome to offer other possible suggestions.)

Edit: If only I'd clicked through to the photo information page on Wikimedia Commons and read it, I would have discovered that the photo was indeed taken from the Tate Modern. So there you go. (Although probably with a long lens, so the perspective won't quite match the view out the window through a human eye.)
