From today's featured list

UEFA Cup Winners' Cup finals concluded a seasonal association-football competition contested between member associations of European football's governing body, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). It was open to winners of domestic cup winners, such as the English FA Cup champions. Throughout its 39-year history, the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup was always a knock-out tournament with two-legged home and away ties until the single-match final, which was staged at a neutral venue; the only exception to this was the two-legged final in the competition's first year. The first competition was won by Fiorentina, from Italy, who defeated Scotland's Rangers 4–1 over two legs to win the 1961 final. Barcelona are the most successful club in the competition's history, having won it on four occasions. The competition was abolished in 1999; the Italian team Lazio were the last team to win it when they beat Mallorca 2–1. (Full list...)

St Cyprian's, Clarence Gate

St Cyprian's Church is an Anglican parish church in the Marylebone district of London. Designed by Sir Ninian Comper in a Perpendicular Gothic style, the building was constructed between 1901 and 1903. The timber hammerbeam roof features tie-beam trusses with panelled tracery spandrels. Comper's stated aim was "to fulfil the ideal of the English Parish Church ... in the last manner of English Architecture".
