Blackfriars House in New Bridge Street
A view of the Grade II listed Blackfriars House of 1913-16 at 19 New Bridge Street, City of London designed by F.W. Troup.

The building is covered in scaffolding and plastic sheeting. A large sign stating that the building is being restored with the name of the developer M.E.P.C [Metropolitan Estates and Property Corporation] and 'Bovis' for Bovis Homes written on it, is attached to the side of the scaffolding.

The white majolica tile cladding on the front of the building can be seen on the ground floor. On the left of the building can be seen the entrance to Watergate with warehouses at the end of the street.

At the side of Watergate can also be seen the side of the Grade II listed Unilever House of 1929-1933. On the right of the building is Tudor Street with the late nineteenth-century 16 New Bridge Street on the corner.

High walkways extending across Watergate from Unilever House can also be seen on the left of Blackfriars House. A large lamp post can be seen in the centre of the photograph.

The majority of the buildings have survived apart from the warehouses at the end of Watergate which have been replaced by twentieth-century office blocks. Blackfriars House became a hotel known as Crowne Plaza London - The City. 16 New Bridge Street became a Tescos Express supermarket.
