From The Building News, July 8 1878: “The site of the proposed building, which we illustrate from the drawing now on view at the Royal Academy, is upon the banks of the Thames, and the principal floors of the river front are occupied chiefly by private sitting rooms, having access to balconies, and shaded by verandahs. The lower story will be faced in red brick, and the upper portion rough cast on brick ; the roofs will be tiled. The materials proposed to be employed, and the entire treatment of the building, are intended to be of the plainest and simplest description. The architect is Mr. W.H. Powell. “
