Norman Shaw (2)

With my eye attuned to the work of Norman Shaw, I realised that the large red brick building at the bottom of St. James’s Street is by him, with its charateristically elaborate corner tower and high Dutch gables.   Indeed, it is.   It was designed in 1882 for the Alliance Insurance Company at the same time that he was doing work for the Royal Academy.
