Title
Wellington House in Buckingham Gate
Description
A view of the front elevation of Wellington House at 67-73 Buckingham Gate, Westminster. It has commercial properties on the ground floor and other accommodation over about five storeys above. Near the camera is the entrance with its elaborate surround. A large part of the street frontage is occupied by Niagara Therapy (UK) Ltd, a company offering pain relief products. The building was known as the home of Britain's War Propaganda Bureau, which operated during World War I from here. It had been the headquarters of the National Insurance Commission before the War. The Bureau, which operated under the supervision of the Foreign Office, was mainly directed at foreign targets, including Allied nations and neutral countries, especially (until 1917) the United States. The building no longer exists and a commercial building of the same name occupies the site.
