Lot Essay

Richardson was involved in the re-development of Moorgate between 1913-17. The perspective of London County and Westminster Bank was designed for the ground floor of Moorgate Hall with an elegant bronze facade.

We are grateful to John Harris and Charles Hind for their assistance with cataloguing the group of architectural drawings.
