Sir John Soane 1753 - 1837

EC2, Lothbury, Bank of England

In the 1920s and 30s Sir John Soane's Bank of England was demolished, all but the ground floor curtain wall, and replaced with what's there today, by Herbert Baker.

Ornamental Passions has a great post with excellent photo, on this statue, and all the sculpture on the Bank of England.
