“The illustration shows the perspective view of this block of residential flats and shops, which occupied a very magnificent position with a frontage to James-street, Buckingham Place, Westminster. The building is faced with T.L. Laurence’s red bricks, and Portland stone. The carved brickwork (by Mr. Gilbert Seale) and the roofs are covered with green slates, and the dormers are in copper. The contract for the building (exclusive of the decorating and electric lighting), has been let to Mr. L.J. Hall, contractor, of Dover, for £21,000, and Mr. Charles James Chirney Pawley, of Westminster, is the architect.”
