Building works in progress...
Marylebone Old Town Hall opened in 1920, built by Sir Edwin Cooper and was listed in 1981. The new building will become part of the London Business School campus but also retain its weddings and ceremonies function, so continuing to be one of the most popular venues in London.
It's always a pleasure to work on a virtually intact original Victorian door set. This set of panels was very dirty and mainly needed minor repairs, recementing and a very good clean up! The front of the panels has a decorative effect applied to the surface of the lead called 'silverfinger'. This gets a little tired looking after a while and needs renewing. Gold was another popular Victorian colour again applied to the surface of the lead.
