133 New Bond Street W1
133 New Bond Street is so dull it does not even get into Pevsner, despite being clad in Portland stone and everything.It seems to date from between the wars, being a sort of stripped-down Tudor with Art Nouveau resonances.
But I like this Viking ship flanked by dolphins, storming in to pillage Europe's most expensive shopping street. However, it may not be entirely authentic - click through to my other blog, Rowing for Pleasure, where the issues are discussed but no conclusion reached.
