8 Lloyd's Avenue[edit]

This seems hardly worth mentioning, since this article seems rather neglected, but one of his minor designs was at (now) 8 Lloyd's Avenue, EC3 London, at the other end of the street from Lloyd's Register of Shipping. I suppose in Wikipedia terms this is called primary sources, but since his stone is set in there as the architect, with that date, primary sources or not it is a fact.

I get fed up with primary sources sometimes when the stone has been stuck in there for over a hundred years and still stands. The office where I work, between the two, seems rather nondescript but of the same period generally. I used to contract occasionally for Lloyd's Register of Shipping, which gives one the immeasurable pleasure, in the basement loos, to be pissing up the Roman London Wall.

By all means add it in. I dont have the City Pevsner which probably lists it but all the others are uncited right now. Will look out for it next time I am there. Justinc (talk) 13:00, 22 May 2011 (UTC)
I forgot to add the date, and I no longer work next door (it was a short contract), so won't be there for a while. It was just after the last century, I think 1908, but please don't take that as fact. Si Trew (talk) 09:06, 9 July 2011 (UTC)
