Bethnal Green Museum

I’ve always liked Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood and now the new decorated entrance façade by Caruso St. John:-



I had never noticed that around the side of the museum, there is a series of mosaic panels showing the arts and industries, which were executed by the students of the National Art Training Schools under the supervision of Frank Moody:-





The building itself was designed – not really designed, but constructed – by James Wild, who also designed Christ Church, Streatham, was an expert on Arabian art at the South Kensington Museum, and ended his career as curator of the Soane Museum.
