A view of the front elevation of a building at 60 Buckingham Gate, Westminster. The elaborately decorated facade includes a frieze with four panels depicting themes from breadmaking: ploughing, sowing, harvesting and producing the loaves. It has a central front door and rises to a gable with dragons on the corner steps and a spire at the apex. The building was the premises of W. Hill bakers, which used the name Hills Hygienic Bakery. The building no longer exists and a modern office block occupies the site. It was designed by Thomas Verity (1837-91) and built c1884.
