    Allan Wyon worked primarily as a sculptor, and was also the last member of his family to work as a die-engraver. He trained at the Royal Academy Schools, and worked as assistant to the sculptor William Hamo Thornycroft. His works include the East Wind for the new headquarters for London Underground at 55 Broadway (1926–9).
