EC4, Victoria Embankment, 60

The foundation stone is on the west elevation, at the south end of John Carpenter Street.

We've listed these statues left to right across the front of the building, with More all on his lonesome on the west (left) facade. Aren't the three double-tiered turrets a delight? Architecture.com gives the architect as Davis & Emanuel, 1882, and "Formerly the City of London School for Boys, it is now part of J. P. Morgan bank. This block was restored in 1991 as part of the new premises by Building Design Partnership."
