Wellington House in Buckingham Gate
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. In this image, the apex of the junction between Buckingham Gate and Petty France is seen where the building is one window wide between rounded turret-like ends. At the roof the central range rises to a point. A letter box can be seen in the foreground. The building was known as the home of Britain's War Propaganda Bureau, which operated from here during World War I. 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.
