Doorcase

Inscription

23/24 Gt. James Street, WC1
This early 18th Century doorcase was removed from no. 40 Great Ormond Street in the year 1965 by courtesy of the Board of Governors of the Hospital for Sick Children and restored by The Haslemere Group of Companies

This small brass plaque is attached to the panelling beside the door, near the bell-push.

Site: D L Sayers and her doorcase (2 memorials)

WC1, Great James Street, 23-24

Our photo of the house seems to have caught the local street sweepers convention.

Sayers described her flat here, as "a delightful set of three rooms". While living here she published her first novel "Whose Body?" which introduced Lord Peter Wimsey.
