47, Maddox Street

I was walking down Maddox Street on my way to a meeting the day before yesterday which gave me a chance to admire the façade of Browns, the restaurant, all in the most brilliant faience by Burmantofts.   I’ve been trying to work out its history.   It was apparently designed by an architect called Walter Williams for a Messrs Lawrence, a tailors and was later owned by Wells and Company who cut suits for Winston Churchill.
