Almost opposite the building I am currently working in is another fine example of Art Deco architecture. It’s modest size and location, next to a complex and busy road junction, perhaps causes it to be ignored among other buildings of the same period in the city, such as nearby Adelaide House mentioned in an earlier post. However, on closer inspection it reveals a wealth of interesting Art Deco ornamentation that possibly warrants an elevation in it’s status and interest.
I had been meaning to write a post on Adelaide House since I first took notice of it a few weeks ago, whilst out one rare and sunny lunch-time looking for remnants of Roman London. What prompted to get it done today was some seeing this incredible vintage film footage which is doing the rounds on-line this week.
