1920 – Tobacco Warehouse, Victoria Docks, London

Architect: Sir Thomas Edwin Cooper

0008

Published in The Building News, July 30 1920: “At present it is proposed to erect only parts of this building, but Mr. Cooper has contrived that the first portion built shall be an entity, and has carefully avoided any disadvantage from a partial priwisioii for administration. Various departmental controllers of dock business- at present are subject to the inconvenience of being housed in small offices scattered about promiscuously, and the Port of London Authority has decided to gather them together under one roof, although the block will not probably be completed in the near future.”
